‘Be sure you put November 11th – the date for Agribusiness 2016, the agri-supply industry conference – in your diary.’ That’s the message from the Agricultural Industries Confederation (AIC).
The theme for Agribusiness 2016 is ‘Accelerating the agriculture and food agenda’. It will feature leading political, scientific and business speakers within the agribusiness arena.
AIC is pleased to announce that Tassos Haniotis, Director for Economic Analysis, Perspectives and Evaluation in the Directorate General for Agriculture at the European Commission will be speaking.
Other speakers confirmed include Beth Hart, Head of Product Development and Technology – Fresh Foods at Sainsbury’s, and leading economic analyst Sean Rickard. This year’s event will be chaired by Charlotte Smith from BBC Radio Four’s Farming Today programme.
John Kelley, Managing Director at AIC Services said: “The speed of change has never been greater and UK agriculture has to accelerate its pace of change if it is to successfully compete. Key initiatives from the EU Commission on Agriculture and the UK AgriTech strategy will be covered, as well as the impact of a yes/no vote for membership of the EU, and a top-level view from a leading food retailer.
“The Agribusiness conference focuses on information and inspiration for leaders in the agricultural supply industry, as well as providing an excellent opportunity for networking. It has become an essential date for those planning their strategy for the coming years.”
