Quote Of The Week

“With the amount of work we have now done on the supply chain, I am relatively comfortable that a no-deal scenario is not going to cause massive problems... I may be over-optimistic, but I cannot see a situation where the Governments of Europe and the UK would allow food not to get from one to the other" - Henry Dimbleby, National Food Strategy chief

Brexit Prep Tip

See Brexit as an opportunity to evaluate your business

“Profit as a percentage of turnover is not very widely used, but farmers should be looking to target 15 per cent. At that level they would be able to afford to invest, draw a reasonable living and have a business which is sustainable for the future.”

Mike Houghton, Andersons, speaking at the Dairy Show
