Student wins Gary Baker Scholarship award

Harper Adams University student Aled John has won the Gary Baker Scholarship award, which will enable him to visit meat plants in Germany, Austria and Poland.

Twenty-four-year-old John from Llangynog, Carmarthen, will be examining carcase dressing processes and offal utilisation on his travels across Europe as a result of winning the travel award.

He said: "Iím really pleased to have been presented with the award from such a lovely family, Iím looking forward to travelling and the experience I will gain as a result of the funding."

The scholarship is intended as a travel award for students pursuing a career in the red meat industry, made by the Worshipful Company of Butchers in memory of the late Gary Baker.

Ralph Early, head of food science and agri-food supply chain management at Harper Adams, commented: "Aled was a hard-working and dedicated undergraduate student, who is now applying his skills and making his mark in a very important sector of the UK food industry.

"We congratulate him on his achievements and wish him well for his travels across Europe."
