The primary role of the team is to seek to improve the position of farmers within an ever more competitive supply chain and therefore involves considerable communication with the UK’s largest grocery retailers, food service and food manufacturing companies so that they are aware of the importance of ensuring that all parts of the food chain are economically sustainable. The Food Chain team’s remit is broad and includes engagement on additional issues including EU legislation and policies, public procurement, the London Olympics and organic food and farming.
