Open Innovation Call to Improve UK Poultry and Pig Farming

One of the UK's largest feed providers AB Agri (Associated British Agriculture) has partnered with the British Pig and Poultry fair to launch their second open innovation initiative. The ABN Innovation Award 2012  seeks to find new ways to improve the pig and poultry farming industry in the UK, and is open to anyone who believe they can add value to the industry. 

Each year The British Pig and Poultry Fair plays host to over 280 exhibitors and specialists providing up-to-date information and advice about the industry. The event features topical debates and is the perfect forum to gain opinions and insights into key industry issues. Attendees also have the opportunity to network with leading industry suppliers and producers. This year marks the second pairing with AB Agri to host the innovation award.

The award is open to anyone in the UK and for the first time is open to all ages. Ideas can include ways to increase demand, reduce costs, improve animal welfare, and reduce the carbon footprint. Selected finalists will be chosen to pitch their proposals to a panel of industry experts at the British Pig and Poultry Fair to be held on 15th and 16th May 2012. The winner will be announced at the fair and be awarded a cash prize of £1,000.
It's a great opportunity for individuals with the best idea to real be seen and be heard by industry influencers. - Alice Bell, RASE Events.
Any submissions must be presented by 16th April 2012 and entrants must ensure they are available to attend the fair to be held at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire. For more information about the award and an entry form click here.
