Six projects to improve the world of British pig production have been handed cash totalling £400,000.
The money is part of the British Pig Executive’s Supply Chain Grant Scheme and the projects range from increasing the amount of British pork in foodservice to an e-commerce website for products.
Chris Lukehurst, BPEX marketing manager, said: “These grants make a real difference to independent producers’ ability to grow their business.” Organisations and groups to benefit from the grants include Manor Born, Watchbell, Big Barn, Meadow Quality, Aubrey Allen and Thames Valley.
