NGDA Statement on the use of lead free ammunition.

At the National Game Dealers Association (NGDA) annual general meeting, members voted to commit to sourcing all feather and fur game as well as venison and wild boar from lead free chains from 1st of July 2022.

This was agreed in order to future proof the sale of game meat in their customers businesses, and to ensure continued consumer growth from those people seeking to enjoy our healthy delicious game products. This is a positive move for our industry to protect the environment and further assure our products in a highly competitive market place. The NGDA and its members will be working with the relevant industry groups to ensure, with this notice, our supply chains are able to make a transition.

If you have any concerns as a supplier to an NGDA member, please discuss your individual requirements with them or the NGDA.

Thank you.

Stephen Crouch - Chairman, National Game Dealers Association
