Commissioners to attend agricultural shows and events

The Assurance Review Commissioners will attend UK agricultural shows and events to gather feedback from farmers, crofters, growers and others.

The Commissioners undertaking the UK Farm Assurance Review want to hear directly from those involved in farm assurance systems, across the agri-food industry, to help provide evidence that will inform their recommendations. 

This is the first stage of an information gathering process that will, in the coming months, include an online survey, submissions from agri-food organisations, selected interviews and focus groups.

The Commissioners are attending a number of agricultural shows and events over the summer to give a short presentation on the UK Farm Assurance Review and to engage in a discussion on some of the topics being considered by the Commission.

This is your opportunity to provide your views about what works, and what does not work, with the current farm assurance system, and how it might be improved for the future.

We plan to be at the shows and events listed below, with dates and venues where currently available. Details of the remaining dates, as well as venues and times will be posted here as soon as they can be confirmed.

These are open events for which we would welcome your attendance and participation in a discussion that will help the Commission in its task. We look forward to seeing you at some point over the summer show and event season.

Please check back here for further details of these events which we will post as soon as they are available.
