This year the P&P Fair was held 15 to 16 of May at Stoneleigh. Leaders of the British Egg and Poultry Industry, amongst the 100.000 visitors, gathered to visit the stands of 360 international exhibitors and to listen to interesting papers given at several Forums. The Egg Outlook helping the industry to plan ahead has had an interesting presentation by the CEO of the British Egg Industry Council, Mr. Mark Williams. From 2025 onwards retailers want to only source eggs from cage free hens making it hard for farmers to decide where to invest. Barn egg sales are currently small in the UK, so the question remains whether the future push will be for Free Range or possibly an increase of Barn egg production like in Austria and Germany.

The Top UK poultry and egg producers made sure to visit the fair to see and hear about new technologies and make best use of networking opportunities.

Ovotherm was represented at the Stoneleigh Pig and Poultry fair by CEO Franz Hofer and Sales Administration Manager Christine Kovacic. They worked together with Andrew Hignett at the RSB booth where also Tecno, Anpario and Moba were presenting their program.
