Nominations still open for David Black Award

There is still time to nominate somebody to receive the David Black Award – the highest honour the pig industry can bestow. 

The award is given to somebody or an organisation whose contribution to the industry has been both valued and sustained.

Nominations will be judged by an independent panel chaired by AHDB Pork director Mick Sloyan.

He said: “The British pig industry has been going through a period of recovery, but there are challenges ahead. Not least of these are current pig prices, even though they have been partially offset by falls in feed prices.

“It takes exceptional people to rise to these challenges and help the industry face and overcome them. There are plenty of people like that in the British pig industry and the aim of the David Black Award is to recognise their contribution.”

The award will be presented at an industry breakfast in November, held at the House of Lords.

Nominations close on Friday 28 August and can be made via the AHDB Pork website.
