NPA Election 2021:Two more allied industry nominations

8th Jan 2021 / By Alistair Driver

Two more allied industry representatives have put their names forward for election to the Pig Industry Group (PIG), ahead of voting later this month. 

Steve Urwin, of the Karro Food Group and with 30 years experience in the livestock sector, is the second processor nomination to come forward. 

"If elected, as Agriculture Director for a pork processor, I believe I would be well placed to represent and feed back information to all stakeholders; to ensure the NPA can continue to be a loud, professional and well-respected voice of our industry," he says in his manifesto.

We also have a second nomination from the pharmaceutical sector in the form of Eduardo Velazquez, from Ceva Animal Health, who, having completed his Veterinary Degree in Spain in 2008, has spent most of his working career in the UK.

"I believe my knowledge and experience in these sectors can be an asset for the NPA as I understand the huge impact the Association has in the pig industry and how it can help in its further development and the challenges ahead," he says in his manifesto.
