The British poultry industry has today launched a new apprenticeship standard for poultry workers, creating a pipeline to bring skilled workers into the sector.
A cross-industry group, which includes the NFU, British Poultry Council (BPC) and Poultec, has launched the new initiative at the Pig and Poultry Fair.
