Synopsis

In this changing world the agri-food supply chain, from farm to table, is more important than ever.

The agri-food supply chain is at the centre of the UK and brings food from UK farmers to UK residents every single day. However, the sector faces challenges in adapting to the modern world; from lowering the carbon footprint of our food, adapting to a growing population with a changing diet and navigating uncertain political and economic times, including the pandemic and Brexit.

This session will briefly explore the agri-food supply chain, covering topics from farming initiatives to sustainable packaging. It will also focus on the unique and exciting careers of those at the forefront of this sector.


Attendees

This event will be of interest to people looking to hear more about the agri-food sector and potential career paths. The committee aims to support people at all stages of their career - whether these are individuals looking for their first role or experienced professionals looking to transition into the agri-food sector.
