BMPA wins best trade organisation award

Proving that it’s the ‘Essential Ingredient’ for Britain’s top meat processing companies, the British Meat Processors Association was awarded Best Trade Organisation at the Meat Management industry awards last night.

Under the leadership of Nick Allen, the association has undergone a major evolution to become the central voice of the British meat industry. Since he came on board as CEO, he has built a team that is completely immersed in the technical, operational and political issues affecting the industry today.

From complex trade issues and the shifting regulatory landscape to workforce and the reputation of the industry, BMPA now provides the most comprehensive support, industry intelligence and influence for its members.

Nick Allen’s reaction to the award: “The hard work and dedication that the whole team has shown throughout Brexit, the pandemic and the myriad other issues facing the industry has made BMPA what it is today.

“I’m delighted that our achievements over the last few years have been recognised in this award and would like to extend a big thank you to the BMPA staff David, Peter and Nan; to Jon and Annadore from Ooda, our strategic communication partner; and to all the dedicated people from our member companies who contribute their time and expertise to our technical committees. BMPA’s offering is going from strength to strength, with more planned for the coming year.”
