Venue: Chesford Grange, Kenilworth, Warwick CV8 2LD

Time: 6pm to 8pm, Wednesday, 2 August 2017

You are invited to the above event at which our panel of speakers representing both farmers and the supply sector will explain their engagement to date with the Secretary of State, Michael Gove, MPs, and senior Defra and EU officials to post-Brexit negotiations and the new Agriculture Bill.

Chris Dodds, UK Livestock Brexit Group
Tom Keen, NFU EU exit and intl trade adviser
Christopher Price, CLA director of policy and advice

AHDB’s head of strategic insight, David Swales, will also explain the levy board’s input.

There will be an opportunity to discuss further their priorities, their responses to the ‘Green Brexit’ Michael Gove announced last week, the timelines involved, and an insight of what they believe it’s going to take to develop policy which will ensure a sustainable and profitable farming sector.

Please indicate your intentions by Friday 28 July by emailing liz@lizsnaithconsultants.com.
