Jim Sperring has been elected the new president of the National Federation of Meat and Food Traders (NFMFT), replacing Glossop butcher John Mettrick, who held the role since 2013. 

Sperring, of JN Sperring & Sons in Bromley, has also held the role of president of the London Retail Meat Traders Association and has served in other roles on the NFMFT executive committee.

In his inaugural speech on 16 June, Sperring told delegates at the federation’s AGM at the Ibis hotel in Euston: “My time on the executive committee and with the London association proves to me just how necessary trade associations like the federation are, providing day to day support, valuable services and representing the demands of our member. There has never been a time in our history when the federation, our role and service to members has been so necessary.”
