Farm Business celebrates award winners

While the UK’s political establishment seems to be collapsing all around us, Farm Business have had good reason to celebrate recently in Parliament.

In this latest edition of Farm Business Digital, we reveal all the winners from an excellent night in the House of Commons for the 2018 Food and Farming Industry Awards (see pages 8 and 9). We had a large number of high quality entries this year and the winners and finalists are doing their industry proud – and showcasing to others just what is achievable.

The issue also tries to make sense of the latest Brexit twists and turns. While nobody can predict the future with any certainty, planning for a ‘no deal’ is being stepped up in the wake of the events of recent days – on page 4, we look at what a no deal might mean and ask if the farming industry is ready for such an outcome.

On page 2, Richard Wright looks at the progress the farming industry is making in reducing and refining antibiotic use, while on page 6, we put the spotlight on a three-year trial into robotics on farms – featuring Tom, Dick and Harry – being run by Waitrose.

Our politics might be going seriously awry at the moment… but there is plenty to celebrate among our farms and food businesses.
