Agribusiness 2019, THE conference dedicated to the UK’s agrisupply industries takes place against the imminent departure of our nation from the European Union.

For the first time in decades, there will be a national agricultural policy and strategy which will look to balance vital food production against an enhanced environment. We have asked our speakers to take a broad look at what the future may hold for policy and practical farming businesses as well as examining the potential opportunities in livestock and arable sectors. We also take a look at how consumer trends are changing – an essential factor in looking to the future. And, of course, we will examine the opportunities that will be generated for the agrisupply industry to play its part in forging a truly resilient supply chain for the future.

I hope you are able to join us for what promises to be an informative day, where you can network with AIC Members as well as policy makers and others with an interest in our sectors. I look forward to welcoming you to Peterborough in November.
