Grimsby FMA

Grimsby F.M.A was incorporated in 1911 therefore we celebrate our centenary this year. Membership has declined in recent times due to retirement and consolidation, despite this there are 80 full members and 11 associate members. The majority of members are small processors employing between 5 - 20 staff; collectively members employ circa 3000 people. The Association is run by a board of six directors; the role of Chairman is shared by two directors.

The Chief Executive is responsible for the day to day running of the business and is supported by two part-time members of staff. Grimsby FMA is the only Association that is run on a full time basis. One of the primary roles is working with various partners within the industry to develop a focused and cohesive industry; this is essential when lobbying.
