Bpex to hold pork safety meetings
Bpex will be running four meetings in the coming months to educate the pig sector on the changing pork safety landscape.
Entitled ‘How pork safety is about to impact the security of your business’, the organisation is urging pig producers, stockment and vets to attend their regional meeting.
The first meeting will be held on 9 December and will feature new information from the Animal Health and Veterinary Laboratories Agency (AHVLA).
Meanwhile, pig vet David Chennells will also be holding a talk about what pig producers can do to safeguard their biosecurity and businesses. “There will be a revealing insight into what the pork buyers think about pork safety, from Bpex foodservice trade sector manager, Tony Goodger,” Bpex added.
AHVLA’s Rob Davies will also lead discussions about salmonella controls and the practical ways farmers can manage the bug on farm.
The meetings dates are:
- Monday 9 December: Sandburn Hall, York
- Tuesday 10 December: Southgreen Park, Dereham
- Wednesday 11 December: Sparsholt College, Winchester
- Thursday 12 December: Gipsy Hill Hotel, Exeter.
