Industry briefings

Through its close ties with Government, regulators, industry groups and buyers, BMPA generates valuable market intelligence.

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.

The period in the run-up to Brexit will, without doubt, throw up the biggest challenges that the British meat industry has faced for decades. 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.

We encourage any operators in the industry who are not yet members to consider joining. You will not only get immediate access to all our private industry briefings, but will add your voice to our on-going lobbying and advocacy work.

A good article that injects some balance into the debate and cautions against making changes that will have unintended consequences worse than the problem we're trying to fix

This week’s @BBC programme #MeatAThreatToOurPlanet failed to show the #sustainable production system we have in the UK. @TheAHDB have sent this open letter along with @HybuCigCymru and @qmscotland on behalf of the industry http://ow.ly/yI3h50xnDeH

If @BBCOne screened a negative documentary about a hospital or school elsewhere in the world, they'd take great pains to point out that it didn't represent the NHS or British schooling. Why was there no such clarity for #BritishBeef #farming? https://metro.co.uk/2019/11/27/british-farmers-furious-bbc-distorted-meat-documentary-11227976/ #FarmingCares
