THE NEXT FIVE YEARS ARE GOING TO BE CRUCIAL FOR THE PIG SECTOR
With an international focus on antibiotics, a volatile marketplace, the increasing influence of Chinese consumption and production on the global industry, Brexit and the ever-present threat of disease, one thing we know is that life will not be dull.
More than ever, to thrive in the pig sector, there is a need for knowledge, co-operation across supply chains and across international markets and the ability to adapt quickly to fast-moving events.
All of this will be addressed at Pigs 2022 – the Opportunities, a conference organised by industry-leading publication Pig World and AHDB Pork.
Over two days the conference will examine and discuss where the industry might be heading in five years’ time and steps we may need to take to remain competitive
Simon Lewis, Pig World’s Associate Publisher, said: “We are delighted to be working with AHDB Pork to put on Pigs 2022, a conference that will look ahead to the big issues facing the pig sector over the next five years.”
“Building on what is already a very successful conference, we are particularly excited to be adding in an international dimension, with some very high profile speakers on both days.”
AHDB strategy director Mick Sloyan said: “The pig sector is constantly facing fresh challenges and this conference is all about bringing together some of the top people in the industry, from the UK and across the globe, to come up with fresh thinking to address them.”
“Fostering innovation is a major priority for AHDB Pork – and this will be one of the main focuses at Pigs 2022.”
