Meat Industry Brexit Impact Report

British Meat Processors Association
British Meat Processors Association

Our structure

The British Meat Processors Association is recognised nationally and internationally as the peak body representing the majority of companies working in the British meat industry.

We play a key role in the development and maintenance of a professional, sustainable and efficient meat industry.

The Secretariat

The National Office and paid staff combine technical and administrative skills as well as corporate affairs expertise to keep members informed about the latest industry developments and represented both in the UK and overseas. The Secretariat forges close working relationships with all organisations that impact the UK meat industry including Government, producers, retailers and consumers.

The BMPA Staff also supports the efforts of volunteer participants on the Council and committees.

The Council & committees

BMPA is governed by a Council, which consists of representatives from member companies and the wider industry. Its role, along with the various committees, is to formulate policies, monitor developments in the industry and provide governance and oversight. The work of these groups contributes to the improvement of standards and practices in the industry.

Members

BMPA’s biggest strength (and the reason it occupies a central role in the British meat industry) is the diversity of its member base. We represent, not just abattoirs, producers and processors, but also associate members drawn from the supermarket, plant equipment and professional services sectors. It is this mix of industry participants and stakeholders along with our other external relationships that most benefits members.

On a potential veterinary agreement, Lord Frost's recent comment suggests EU, not UK reluctance????
