Packington Free Range is celebrating their latest win having been honoured with The Good Pig Award by Compassion in World Farming as part of the Good Farm Animal Welfare Awards 2012. Rob Mercer attended a presentation evening at the Honourable Artillery Company in London to receive the award, hosted by cook, food writer and broadcaster Valentine Warner.

The Good Farm Animal Welfare Awards are in its sixth year, recognising and awarding food companies that are committed to implementing substantial policy changes that result in positive impacts for farm animals.

“As animal welfare is at the heart of everything we do here at Packington, to be recognised for an award in the industry is something we’re very proud of and really reinforces our whole farming ethos.  This latest award means we have a hatrick of awards for our mantelpiece from Compassion in World Farming, as last year we collected The Good Chicken Award 2011 and The Leadership Award in Pig Welfare 2011.” says Rob Mercer.
