Session One: “Setting the Ambition for a Productive and Profitable Horticulture Industry”


As we look beyond Brexit to the future of the industry, it is critically important to identify and capitalise on the opportunities for delivering growth for UK horticulture. From providing healthy food to a healthy environment, we need a productive and profitable sector ready to meet the demands of British consumers for home-grown, delicious fruit, grown to some of the highest standards in the world. This panel will explore what we can achieve, and how we can achieve it to ensure the future success of this sector.
