AHDB provides online Coronavirus advice for British farmers and growers

In a message from Jane King, CEO of AHDB, she says: “To our farmers, growers and supply-chain businesses. We are all living in the most extraordinary of times.

The speed of change is breath taking, and to take the right decisions for our businesses and our families relies on having good access to relevant information. Supporting our industry remains a priority for AHDB. We realise some businesses are in crisis, while others are having to significantly change the way they work or the markets they supply. For all of us, the immediate future remains uncertain.

AHDB will be delivering events online and produce the latest ‘bite-sized’ market information via video, webinars and podcasts – all accessible at the click of a button, Ms King says.

To bring all the latest advice together in one place, AHDB has created specific coronavirus-related pages on its website where you can access the latest Government advice for employers and employees, links to other industry organisationsfrequently asked questions and a wealth of tools and business information.

Some of the Coronavirus-related pages include:

Coronavirus FAQs
Coronavirus: business advice and support
Coronavirus: contingency planning for your business
Coronavirus and the supply chain
Coronavirus: consumer marketing support
Coronavirus: essential travel letter template
Coronavirus: advice from other organisations
Coronavirus: home schooling resources
