We have 2 types of membership - Full and "Friends of Ladies in Pigs".
Full membership applies to those people who want to be actively involved in our work and involves promotional and education events throughout the country.
"Friends of LIPs" is for those people who support the work we are doing, but cannot commit actively.
For more information, please contact us using the Contact us tab.
If you too have a ‘passion for pork’ and a desire to support pig farming, then JOIN US! Whether helping at county shows or sampling in a supermarket, not only will you be doing something worthwhile (and earning a little extra cash) ... but you’ll have fun too!
How we get involved - and you could too!
• LIPs recognises the need for unity within the industry. • We maintain a high profile, liaising with producers and producer organisations. • We encourage links between farming and food, city and countryside.
• LIPs understands the need for educating future generations. • LIPs regularly attends school days and educational institutes, providing recipe ideas and cookery demonstrations. • LIPs produces an activity booklet for children called ‘The Pig Issue’, which also contains healthy eating information, as this is now part of the school curriculum.
• Our members have frequent and direct contact with consumers. • LIPs lobbies for clear pork product labelling so that consumers can make informed buying decisions.
• LIPs provides support to the pig industry as a committed, trained workforce. • We are pleased to support multiple retailers and independent butchers in a range of activities to promote quality pork and pork products.
