Agriculture Champions to take forward Agriculture Strategy for Scotland

In January, Fergus Ewing MSP announced the appointment of four Agriculture Champions to advise on the development of a strategy for the sector.

The Agriculture Champions will help develop an Agriculture Strategy to guide the long-term sustainable future for Scottish agriculture, by increasing profitability and boosting innovation, production and sustainability.

Each Champion will be paired across four themes:

  • Education and Training Champion - Henry Graham, Scottish Chair of Lantra
  • Food and Drink Champion - Archie Gibson, Chair of the Scottish Food and Drink Federation
  • Sustainability Champion - John Kinnaird, Farmer and Former President of NFUS
  • Public Value Champion - Marion MacCormick, Buying Director for ALDI

The Agriculture Champions are setting up working groups to take forward work with their themes.  More on this in due course.
