Fit for the Future: Your Value in the Supply Chain
With a growing emphasis on UK farms needing to be competitive in the market place and more connected in supply chains, this conference addresses both these issues. Harriet Wilson, Senior Agriculture Manager with The Co-op will explain the Co-op’s strategy to source solely UK meat and the importance of the farmers and farm supply in their supply chain to achieve this. Jack Watts, Senior Analyst , AHDB, will introduce AHDB’s Farmbench benchmarking tool. He will explore how competitive our industry is and the need to know our costs of production and how competitive we are on a local, national and international scale in order to compete in supply chains and combat market volatility and thrive in a post-BREXIT world. Steve Evans , AHDB Consumer Insight Manager will look at current trends in the British consumer market place and how British farmers may positively react to this. Finally, the conference will debate key learning and action points to take our farming industry forward. The conference starts at 14:45 and closes at 18:00 and is followed by a networking supper.
