Bord Bia secured funding from the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine to support Irish pig producers by applying ‘Lean’ principles, in order to further enhance efficiency levels and thereby lessen the impact of market volatility.

Thirty Irish pig farms have been selected to participate in the ‘Lean Programme for Pigmeat Producers’, in conjunction with Enterprise Ireland and Teagasc. The scale of this programme is significant with an investment of €350,000.

The wider pigmeat sector will benefit from this initiative, with likely efficiencies to be gained at farm level as well as potential for more effective feedback from the processing industry regarding health and uniformity.

Green Business will assist the programme with support regarding resource efficiency. For more, see here.
