20 Jul Pullet Rearer of the Year – We Won!
We are honoured to be winners at the 2022 Egg and Poultry Awards!
Here is Matthew green proudly holding the award for pullet rearer of the year! With him are the comedian and presenter Lucy Porter, and Charles Bournes.
Business leaders from all the major egg and poultry firms, representatives from industry bodies, and egg and poultry producers met in London for the awards ceremony, drinks reception, and gala dinner to celebrate the industry’s achievements.
Comedian and broadcaster Lucy Porter hosted the ceremony, where a total of 16 awards were handed out, covering all aspects of the industry from the best in farming and processing, to up-and-coming talent in the veterinary and farming sectors.
In addition to three awards specifically designed to recognise young talent in the poultry sector: young vet of the year, young farmer of the year, and young processor of the year, this year saw the introduction of several new awards, including Special Achievement of the year.
The National Egg & Poultry Awards was launched in 2018 as an annual event by Poultry Business magazine and Lewis Business Media to recognise excellence and innovation in the egg and poultry sectors. Now in its fifth year, the standard of entries from across the country was excellent.
The judging panel was made up of BPC chief executive Richard Griffiths, turkey farmer Paul Kelly, BEIC chief executive Mark Williams, poultry farmer Charles Bourns, NFU poultry advisor Aimee Mahony, specialist in poultry veterinary medicine Kannan Ganapathy, and Poultry Business publisher Simon Lewis.
Congratulations to all the winners and commiserations to the finalists who didn’t quite make it!
