NFU Conference Shows Optimism: The Pendle Pig Respond


Lancashire, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/31/2015 -- The 25thFebruary saw the annual gathering of The National Farmers Union (NFU) take place, with potentially exciting predictions for the farming and related catering industries. This has excited much comment from prominent businesses working in line with the best farmers, such as the Pendle Pig.

At the NFU conference, a four point strategy had been set down by the British Government to bring increased productivity, competition and resilience to British agricultural practices. For example, in terms of pig farming this means an increased resilience and more skilled workers in the field, allowing for the highest quality meat, especially taking considerations of Free Range initiatives.

In turn, this suggests that there is much progress set to take place in British farming. For example,The NFU conference also showed that whilst France has 219 protected names in food products concerned with agriculture, the UK only has 62. It was the role of the conference to draw attention to these figures, so that they can in turn efficiently addressed in the future. This includes also reducing the use of pesticides in light of set restrictions from The European Commission in then what could be seen as sustainable, progressive methods of agriculture.

The Pendle Pig, who work closely with the local agricultural industries in Lancashire to source their high-quality meat and are regular commentators on market activity,were quick to comment in light of the NFU conference:

"We think that the conference shows real positivity in the farming markets," a spokesperson told us. "In turn, this means that catering closely related to agriculture is in an especially strong position.

"At The Pendle Pig, we work closely with local farmers to obtain the best quality, free-range meat for our hog roast. With the NFU guidelines seeking to improve resilience and make the EU rules accessible and workable for farmers, this inspires confidence knowing that we can continue to provide high quality products to our customers. In turn, this allows us to offer meats and accompanying food at the most affordable prices. We hope people can share this excitement and taste of progress as much as we do."
