The AHDB Supply Chain Conference returns for the third year with the latest conference looking at how primary producers can take the most from market opportunities.

A packed programme of industry experts will look at post farm-gate opportunities, what is happening in the world food market, its relevance to UK producers, business management and the economics behind it, plus the skills and knowledge you will need to add value, diversify or further integrate with your supply chains.  

The keynote address will be given by Sean Rickard, a respected, independent economist who has a reputation for professional, insightful and original analysis ranging from the economy to food and farming.

The conference is aimed at primary producers, growers or those who work in or are connected with the agricultural industry.
