BASC and the British Game Alliance have joined forces to secure the future of shooting.
BASC will support the BGA with financial backing, access to BASC staff expertise and a BASC council member to sit on the BGA board.
That council member is Peter Watson. He said: “BASC and the BGA are working together to ensure that assured game meat enters the food chain and that the BGA Assurance scheme, which references the Code of Good Shooting Practice, is strictly adhered to. This stands to protect game shooting and provide validity and reassurance of the provenance and quality of British game meat.”
Tom Adams, managing director of the BGA, said: “The BGA is grateful for BASC’s support. Working together, we can focus on delivering our shared objectives of a sustainable game market and credible self-regulation. I am confident that with BASC’s advocacy our critical initiative will gather pace to further secure shooting in the UK.”
