We make it our business to cultivate close working relationships with key stakeholders up and down the food chain both here and in overseas markets. These connections allow us to build a detailed picture of the issues that affect companies and people working in the UK meat industry.

Our industry briefings give members a competitive edge and allow them to put in place informed, long-term plans and to respond effectively to rapidly unfolding situations.

It is our job to monitor developments and interpret the ‘inside’ information we have access to, then deliver timely, actionable, expert advice to our members. These confidential updates and reports ensure that BMPA members stay ahead of the game.

Our industry briefings give members a competitive edge and allow them to put in place informed, long-term plans and to respond effectively to rapidly unfolding situations.

Businesses large and small need reliable intelligence to be able to keep up with and respond to the changing industry landscape. Business and investment decisions will rely on having a clear picture, and BMPA is committed to providing that.
