NPA meets the Compass Group

11th Jul 2019 / By Rebecca Veale

Last week, NPA's Lizzie Wilson and Becca Veale met with the food service company Compass Group UK.

Based in the UK and Ireland their 60,000 strong team provide catering solutions and support services from the military and hospitals to sporting events and museums.

The Compass Group buying team were keen to understand more about our work on antibiotics and the recent eMB data which was published. There was also discussion about African Swine Fever; the current situation in Europe and Asia, how that will progress and the impact that it is having on the market.

We are really keen to get our messages across, particularly on the benefits of high quality British Red Tractor pork, to the food service sector, which we feel presents huge opportunities for the pig sector.

Meeting with companies and organisations from across the supply chain is vital work for NPA, to ensure that relevant and important information is shared and that policy is best informed.
