NFU launches strategy to boost UK horticulture
According to Scottish Farmer, the NFU in England and Wales has launched a strategy that could book the UK horticulture. The strategy will aim to solve issues such as sustainable energy, lack of skilled labour, and supply chain fairness, in hope of long-term growth and ensuring a fresh supply of produce on supermarket shelves. NFU president, Minette Batters, said: “We have an ambitious horticulture sector that wants to produce more of the fresh food the nation loves but this ambition needs the full support of government. That’s why we are setting out the key priorities needed to stabilise the challenges facing the sector in the short term and help to deliver long term growth and a thriving, world-class horticulture sector in the future."
