Raw materials prices and plastic packaging to come under scrutiny.

Influential speakers and leading players in equine nutrition will discuss challenges facing the feed industry later this month.

Tickets are available for the 2022 British Equestrian Trade Association (BETA) Feed Conference at the Hilton East Midlands Airport on 30 June. 

The event, which runs from 10am until around 3.30pm, is supported by Premier Nutrition. 

“This is your opportunity to hear an exciting range of speakers and meet up with other members of the feed industry,” said BETA’s executive director Claire Williams,

  • Social Licence: how the threat to the leisure use of horses will impact our trade.
