Each year at the Annual Poultry Conference in November, the industry recognizes an individual who has made a significant contribution to our industry. Anyone can nominate someone for this award. The nominations are then screened and references checked by an independent panel who then make the final assessment and decision.
So many brilliant people work in our industry it’s always very hard to select just one, so it’s therefore really important that if you feel there is an individual who is deserving of this prestigious honour that you nominate them and provide as much information to support your nomination as possible.
The criteria are very broad. Quite simply the award will be presented to an individual who has given outstanding service to the poultry industry over the years. The person may have made a significant and lasting difference or some specific contribution or may simply have vast networks and has maintained these over the years which as a result has moved the industry forward.
As always the successful candidate should not be aware that this is happening so discretion is required.
