ForFarmers counting down to ‘virtual’ National Pig Awards next month!

National pig awards 2020

Now in its seventh year, ForFarmers is proud once again to be supporting the National Pig Awards as principal sponsor. The much loved event celebrates the very best of the UK pig industry and brings together those who make significant contributions.

In line with government guidance this year’s event will be hosted as a ‘virtual’ event, taking place on Monday 16th November 2020. Craig Saunders, Sales Director at ForFarmers comments: “We’re delighted to be supporting such an important event for the UK pig industry. The awards celebrate the very best our industry has to offer, and given the challenges we’re all facing due to Covid 19, this year’s event is set to be more special than ever!”

Dr Charlotte Evans, Head of Technical and Nutrition, Sales Pig, Poultry and Speciality at ForFarmers is one of the judges on this year’s panel. Despite the changes to the event this year, Charlotte comments: “The judging has been a lot of fun.
In addition to the high number of entrants, we continue to meet new people who are working with such commitment to the industry, from attracting new entrants, innovative projects or different marketing initiatives. We have also seen novel ways of using technology to help us judge where social distancing has been a challenge! It is always a pleasure to be involved in the judging panel.”

Congratulations to this year’s 2020 finalists

As the event draws closer, we await to hear the winners which will be announced on the 16th November. To watch the live steam of the awards for free, register online here
