An award winning ‘fresh start’May 4, 2012
Last week (3rd May) Dalehead Foods won the Training Initiative of the Year category for the ‘Fresh Start Pig Academy’ at the Pig and Poultry Marketing Awards, held in London. This was a project set up by BQP, part of Dalehead Foods, in conjunction with Harper Adams University College. The judges commented that this training course provided an excellent incentive to encourage entrepreneurial entrants from both agricultural and non agricultural backgrounds into the pig industry. The programme facilitates the training of final year students and local people external to the college.
Richard Gooding, BQP Growing Farms Manager collected the award, (pictured centre). Many people, across all Dalehead sites, were involved in this award winning initiative, making it such a success, congratulations and thank you to all!
This wonderful achievement is in addition to the ‘Highly Commended Championing British’ which was awarded to the Fresh Start Pig Academy last week by Waitrose for the Waitrose Way Awards.
