Migrant labour survey closed - results soon

27th Oct 2016 / By Alistair Driver

Thank-you to everyone who took the time tio fill in our migrant labour survey. The survet is now closed - we will be publishing the results soon. 

The future availability EU labour in the pig industry is one of our biggest concerns in the aftermath of the vote to leave the EU. And it is not just about migration - the weak pound is already making UK work less attractive for some foreign workers.

In order to make the strongest case possible to Government for policies that will allow the industry to continue accessing EU labour, we invited pig farmers and any businesses connected to the pig industry to complete the survey to gauge how reliant the industry is on it.
