    British Pig Industry Goes To Europe

News of the easing of export restrictions adds new impetus to the British Pig Executive's (BPEX) moves to keep the lines of communication open with Europe.


BPEX is well aware of the importance of getting exports re-established as quickly as possible to help ease the crisis in the industry.

To that end, BPEX is jointly sponsoring a British meat dinner as part of Anuga, the biggest food fair in the world, which takes place in Cologne, from October 13 to 17.
The dinner is for 260 people including buyers and journalists from all over Europe and beyond.

BPEX Export Manager Jean-Pierre Garnier said: "We intend to make this a vintage edition of the British meat dinner in view of the difficult circumstances facing the pig industry.

"We aim to advertise that we are back in business, though under restrictions. We have continued to talk to buyers throughout Europe, many of whom will be at the dinner, so we can hit the ground running."
