Why we exist
The food and farming industry is of great importance to Britain. Agriculture uses around 70% of the UK’s land area and produces under 60% of all the food we consume in the UK, our food and drink industry employs over half a million people, has a turnover in excess of £70bn, and is the largest manufacturing sector representing around 15% of total UK industry.
But the food and farming industry is going through a time of profound challenge and change. The old ways of doing things are already evolving to meet the challenges of a very new and different tomorrow. Farmers and producers need help navigating the challenges. They need know-how and solutions to help them survive in this fast changing global marketplace.
AB Connects’ role is to help to farmers, producers and businesses all along the UK food and farming supply chain. It provides help in many forms. Through offering practical support to help farmers improve feed efficiency, better manage volatility and adopt better farm management practices. It also helps by providing new product and services which help its customers grow, adapt and win in the global market.
For the wider food supply chain AB Connect is a vital link in the chain, able to manage risk and volatility around raw material procurement and support and drive change through the supply chain.
