2018 Grand Prix

A number of producers keen to fly the flag for UK pig production and become one of the next eight EU PiG Ambassadors have entered the 2018 Grand Prix.  The winners will be announced in the summer.

The Grand Prix encourages producers to share innovative ideas and examples of best practice from their farms. It is an annual EU-wide contest, with up to 300 producers competing.

EU PiG was looking for entries that tackle one of the eight challenges below (two for each of the project’s four key themes):

Winning one of the eight Ambassador titles in the EU PiG Grand Prix means producers can:

       Receive international recognition of your business and success

       Get to know Europe’s best producers – you might find your next big idea

       Achieve added pride and motivation for staff

EU PiG is a €2 million project running for four years which is funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme.
