FARMERS and wider industry will have an opportunity to hear how they can add ‘environmental value’ to their brand at an AHDB conference this month.
On Thursday, November 18th, AHDB will be joined by industry experts at Kingston Maurward College in Dorset for the annual AHDB Supply Chain Conference.
In previous years, speakers have looked at identifying and accessing new markets, and the business of selling and communicating beyond the farmgate.
However, this year the emphasis is on realising and valuing the brand of ‘UK farming plc’ as the food and farming industry goes forward post-Brexit with a new UK Agriculture Policy.
As BPS reduces and ELMS is introduced, the conference will focus on how farmers and businesses can capitalise on value and added value in the supply chain for the ‘public good’ they do.
Philip Dolbear, AHDB Senior Knowledge Exchange Manager (South West) said: “I’m really pleased to be running this Supply Chain Conference after an enforced break last year with an array of fantastic speakers. Farmers will be able to take away ideas that will help them realise better value from the good work they do for the environment.”
