  • Provision of up to the minute information and guidance on industry issues affecting our members
  • Representation to Government in the UK and Europe to help shape policy
  • Provision of specialist advice and assistance on technical, legislative and enforcement matters
  • Ownership and management of the key pigmeat product and manufacturing standards behind the widely recognised Red Tractor consumer logo.
