The conference will see a line-up of speakers including the American professor of animal science Temple Grandin, CEO of Bord Bia Tara McCarthy and the Chief Veterinary Officer Christine Middlemiss.

Full details of the royal visit have yet to be disclosed, but the Chair of Meat Business Women, Laura Ryan said: “To have HRH The Princess Royal now attend our event is an absolute honour and it will not only help us to raise the profile of the initiative, but also mean so much to everyone attending.”

At the event, delegates will also receive more details on the 2019 One to Watch prize, awarded to female talent within the meat sector. Harriet Wilson of Aldi UK, last year’s winner, won a place on the Cranfield Management School’s Women as Leaders course, worth over £4,000.

The Princess Royal is a Past Master of the Worshipful Company of Butchers (WCB) and recently attended the WCB / IoM annual prizegiving lunch, which also took place at Painters’ Hall, confirming her ongoing support for the UK meat industry.

The MBW Painters’ Hall event takes place in London from 9.30am to 4pm on 14th May. Tickets and more information can be sourced at: www.meatbusinesswomen.org
