British agriculture on the world stage – what next?
Trade without boundaries
What do the next ten years hold for British agriculture? For the first time in almost 50 years, Britain’s farmers will be competing directly with farmers from all over the world. For many, this represents a chance to radically rethink the way they operate; not only in their day to day farming activities but also how they connect with their suppliers and customers.
Please join us on Thursday 14 January at 3pm for a ‘Question Time’ style webinar at which our panel of speakers, bringing their particular perspective on the challenges ahead for British farmers, will endeavour to answer your questions about life after the EU and trading on the world stage:
Duncan Andrews, Director, Cotswold Farm Park
In partnership with Adam Henson, Duncan has been instrumental in the creation of a financially and environmentally sustainable commercial farming operation including one of the region’s best known – and loved – diversification projects, the Cotswold Farm Park.
John Giles, Promar International
John’s experience in market research, global markets and strategy development helps farmers, food companies and retailers all over the world to understand local and international supply chains. His recent projects have taken him to Turkey, Germany, Ireland, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Mexico and Russia, as well as the UK, where he has explored the countless opportunities for agri-food businesses both at home and globally.
Kevin and Jane Fuchsbichler,
Kevin and Jane run an arable and livestock farm at Bruce Rock, Western Australia and are both actively involved in WAFarmers, campaigning tirelessly on behalf of the farming community in the Western Australia ‘Wheatbelt’. Kevin is also a director of CBH, a co-operative and Australia’s largest grain exporter, and understands what it takes to be competitive on the international stage.
The panel session, chaired by Joel Woolf, will be held via Zoom at 3pm on 14 January and will last for about an hour.
To make the session as useful to you as possible we would welcome your questions in advance.
