NPA North Regional Meeting

Cost: Free
Date: October 5th 2015
Time: Arrival 18:30 - Departure 21:30
Venue: Sandburn Hall, Scotchman Lane, Flaxton, York, YO60 7RB

A surplus of pork, suppressed consumer demand and a weak Euro are all factors that have contributed to downward pressure on the UK pig market, which has kept prices low so far this year. Domestic and international demand will need to rise if the sustained pressure on pig prices is going to be relieved. Join us for this meeting to hear how NPA has been working hard on your behalf to maintain the 30p/kg premium by negotiating with retailers and lobbying at home and in Brussels. We have also launched a consumer-facing social media campaign to further stimulate demand of, specifically, British pork. We will be using this meeting as an opportunity to present the campaign and get your feedback on it.

As usual, the NPA team will begin proceedings with an update on NPA activities. Stephen Howarth from AHDB Pork will then give us the very latest information on the current market trends and prices. This will be followed by a presentation about the Pulled Pork campaign from Kirsty Walker, Head of Marketing at AHDB Pork. This campaign had an impressive effect on sales of the whole fresh pork category, not just pork shoulder. Kirsty will tell us about the success of the campaign and plans for the second phase. At the end of the meeting we would like to have a general discussion about how to rejuvenate the image of pork, so if you have any bright ideas please come willing to share them!

Please indicate your attendance by contacting Georgina, email or telephone 07551 155654.
