TODAY'S NEWS FROM AROUND THE WORLD

We're getting younger
October 19, 2014
The pig industry age profile is is gradually getting lower, according to demographic data for this website. True, 25 percent of visitors are 65 or over, but we would have suspected that to be the case. The encouraging statistics are that 23 percent are 45-54, and 20 percent are mere children (in pig industry terms) at 35-44. We could do with more female visitors though.

Do we need an emergency cache of arks and tents?
October 19, 2014
One of the most vexing and seemingly intractable problems for pig producers is how to plan for the movement standstill that will affect some units if there is an African swine fever outbreak in Britain over the next few months.

Take your smart phone shopping — it's
time to start naming and shaming

October 19, 2014
NPA 'TAKE YOUR PHONE SHOPPING' CAMPAIGN
The world changes next spring when European Union law will require the origin of all fresh pork to be declared on the label. This will be a huge leap forward for British pig producers who have campaigned for years against imported pork being cleverly passed-off as British by manufacturers and retailers.

East Anglia meeting
October 18, 2014
Reminder — NPA's autumn east region meeting is on Tuesday, October 21, at Diss Rugby Club 6pm-9pm.

Brussels must drive down meat eating, say campaigners
October 18, 2014
Environmental lobby groups are calling on Brussels not to focus merely on food waste, but to encourage consumers to eat less meat, and to promote farming methods that protect biodiversity. "Reducing food waste is not the key solution for a shift towards a sustainable food system — it's one symptom of a sick system," claims the campaign group Slow Food.

Candidates for NPA Producer Group
October 18, 2014
Seven candidates have stepped forward for election to NPA Producer Group already — an excellent response so early in the campaign. Pictures and manifestos are published here as soon as they are available.

It's all about the market
October 17, 2014
Nominations are now open for NPA's Allied Industry Group election. We've been asking current members what they see as the major challenges ahead… Phil Woodall of marketing group TVC, who has served on NPA's Allied Industry Group for nine years and will be standing for re-election, highlights cost competitiveness of the British pig versus Europe's major exporters, and the way this is impacted by issues such as currency and trade embargoes.
