Consistently Seeking Quality Pork

UK - Keeping costs down is only one half of the pig production equation - if the meat quality is not good enough it won't be popular.

High and consistent quality is the aim of every producer and the British Pig Executive (BPEX) together with the meat quality research group at Bristol University are launching a scheme to help improve it.

The aim is to work on an individual level with pork processors. The scheme is free, though there will be a cost if any analysis or measurements are required.

BPEX Knowledge Transfer Manager Silvia Nicolau-Solano said: "Getting top quality consistent pork and pork products is vital for the future of the British pig industry.

"A number of the larger processors have already expressed an interest in the project but it is open to all.

"Those interested will have to complete a short questionnaire which will be followed by a visit from a BPEX KT manager and someone from Bristol University to discuss key issues.

"All this will be strictly confidential and any processors who would like to take part should get in touch with Silvia by email, silvia_nicolau@bpex.org.uk.
