BMPA wins Best Trade Association two years in a row

BMPA has won Best Trade Association for the second year in a row at the Meat Management industry awards night in Birmingham. Commenting on the achievement Nick Allen said: “We’ve been on a mission over the last few years to build an association that can deliver a wider membership offering and support companies as they navigate the legislative, political, technical and sustainability challenges they face.

“This award recognises the hard work that the whole team has put in, but it also reflects the value to members of the collaborative work that goes on behind the scenes in the technical committees. It’s this breadth of input and influence that has made BMPA the peak representative body for the meat processing industry.”
