John Godfrey CBE, together with the late Sir Ben Gill, was responsible for bringing together the NFU pig committee and the commercial arm of the British Pig Association to form the National Pig Association in 1999.

“Pig producers had been calling for a single voice for the country’s commercial pig sector for many years but it took two exceptionally talented men, both respected and trusted by farmers, to overcome the obstacles and make it happen,” said north Yorkshire producer Richard Lister, chairman of NPA.

John Godfrey was the first NPA chairman and is now a director of Elsham Linc Ltd, a large-scale pig producer.
