Funding Your Future 2023

In 2023 our sector councils recommended to increase levy rates from the 2024/25 financial year and these proposals received ministerial approval. Find out the reasons behind the increase and why it will benefit you and our industry.

Why the levy increase was proposed

The purpose of increasing rates was 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.

AHDB’s spending power has been greatly reduced in recent years 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.
