Sustainability Hub

A 12-month project over 2023 showcasing how every part of poultry meat and egg farming, packing and processing is moving towards a more sustainable future.

This new initiative will drive an understanding of the challenges and opportunities that surround the complex subject of sustainability.

Net Zero

The UK currently aims to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, with the NFU having a more ambitious target for agriculture of 2040.

The Poultry.Network Sustainability Hub aims to answer these questions with our sponsor partners.
