Enter the 2018 Grand Prix

For producers keen to fly the flag for UK pig production and become one of the next eight EU PiG Ambassadors, entries are now open for the 2018 Grand Prix.

All UK producers are eligible to enter by sharing 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 is looking for entries that tackle one of the eight challenges below (two for each of the project’s four key themes):

AHDB Pork’s knowledge exchange managers can also provide help chatting through ideas and filling in entry forms. The deadline for entries is 28 February 2018.

Winning one of the eight Ambassador titles in the EU PiG Grand Prix would mean you could:


       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

Plus, all UK entrants could win an extra award at Pig Fair 2018.

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

This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 727933.
