Philip Lymbery "among top 100 grocery industry figures"

News Section Icon Published 24/05/2011

Philip Lymbery has been named within the 'top 100' most influential figures in the grocery industry by Grocer magazine.

The magazine highlighted Compassion's Cows Belong in Fields campaign, which successfully opposed Nocton Dairy's plans for a mega dairy earlier this year.

The Grocer is focused on all aspects of the food and drink industry from producers to consumers and is recognised as a market-leading publication by industry experts.

Philip said: "I am delighted that Compassion's efforts for farm animal welfare and better food are being recognised.  Our work with food industry companies is key and we look forward to increasing our impact through the partnerships and progress that we are making."

Martin Lewis, the founder of the Moneysavingexpert website, topped the Power 100 rankings, which included the heads of leading food businesses and no less than four celebrity chefs: Jamie Oliver, Delia Smith, Heston Blumenthal and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, who has worked with Compassion on various issues, most notably "Chicken Out".
