ABOUT PRODUCER GROUP


How Producer
Group works

Producer Group is the policy-making powerhouse of the English pig industry. It meets five times a year.

The meetings — which are never dull — are held in London either at the Farmers Club in Westminster, or nearby at the Mothers' Union headquarters.

Meetings are usually from 10.30pm to 3pm. It is necessary to read some paperwork beforehand, and to take soundings from local producers, particularly on contentious issues. Lunch is included and members are paid travelling expenses.
