Top Award for Red Tractor Assurance Chairman

29 December 2011, at 1:11am

UK - Red Tractor Chairman, Ted Wright, has been awarded a top poultry award in recognition of his role and extraordinary achievements as a Norfolk leader of the poultry industry.

Mr Wright, who earlier this summer was made a Freeman of the City of London, was presented with the British Poultry Council's distinguished service award for his dynamic role in creating a national contingency plan in event of avian flu.

Anne McIntosh, MP, Chairman of the environment, food and rural affairs select committee, made the presentation at the House of Commons.

Mr Wright led the industry response to the first major outbreak of the highly-infectious strain of avian flu which struck the industry more than five years ago. His background and extensive knowledge in the turkey production sector was a leading factor on senior levels of policy development and veterinary response plans to the crisis.

Three years ago, he was also made a liveryman of the Worshipful Company of Poulterers, which was founded in 1274.
