Funding Your Future 2023
Our sector councils are proposing to increase levy rates from the 2024/25 financial year. Find out the reasons behind this and why it will benefit you and our industry.
Why a levy increase is being proposed
The purpose of increasing rates is to meet the request from levy payers to deliver more key services, including marketing and exports for the Beef & Lamb, Dairy and Pork sectors and more independent research for the Cereals & Oilseeds sector.
This comes at a time when AHDB’s spending power has been greatly reduced by rising costs, which have been particularly affected by the increase in inflation.
With agriculture facing unprecedented pressures, the services we provide to support you, the levy payer, are becoming more important than ever.
Each year, your levy is invested in tackling opportunities and challenges that cannot, and will not, be addressed by commercial organisations, individuals or governments.
Watch the Funding Your Future live Q&A sessions on this page, where we answer levy payers' questions on the proposed increase and future direction of AHDB.
Sector councils will make a final recommendation to the AHDB board, which will put the proposals to government ministers and devolved administrations later this year.
