Benefits of joining

BMPA works closely with buyers, consumer groups and legislators to understand what the market wants from producers. The Pork Scheme puts that into a practical standard that’s accepted by all major buyers.

Because this is the most widely accepted standard, members of the BMPA Pork Scheme can sell their products to the largest number of customers without the need for different requirements. Membership also opens up more opportunities to sell to businesses that only buy assured products.

Beyond the opportunity to sell into a bigger market, companies that adhere to the Scheme Rules find that their businesses also benefit from increased efficiency. Staying compliant often means staying competitive. Members also report the added bonus that they’re subject to less Government scrutiny because they go above and beyond the minimum legal requirements.

Overview of member benefits

  • Access to a bigger market for your products
  • Achieve higher prices for your assured products
  • Less Government red tape
  • Keep your business efficient and competitive
  • Build a stronger, more trusted brand

A cautionary article about the unintended consequences of our lifestyle choices. If we want to tackle climate change, we need to be armed with the facts first. We're presenting them at Rethink on 17 March. https://rethinkforums.org/

An example of how some journalists/activists work. Anna quotes George Monbiot as saying: 'It’s an idealised position. I know we won’t get things to change as far as that...I then make it easier for others to find the political space in which change can take place'. Common ground?

The speakers at #RethinkForum all have a desire to find solutions to the climate crisis that won’t have unintended consequences worse than the original problem. It’s important that the full scientific picture is presented. https://rethinkforums.org/
