Environment Secretary George Eustice MP to set out roadmap for the transformation of farm support, live from #OFCBitesize on Monday (30 Nov).

Join the Oxford Farming Conference (OFC) at 10am on Monday, 30 November for a special OFC Bitesize, in partnership with the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.

Environment Secretary George Eustice MP will set out the roadmap for the transformation of the way in which we support farmers. This will be centred on support aimed at incentivising sustainable farming practices, creating habitats for nature recovery and establishing new woodland and other ecosystem services to help tackle challenges like climate change.

The Secretary of State will set out how we will support farmers to produce high quality and nutritious food in a more sustainable way and improve transparency in the supply chain to help food producers strengthen their position at the farm gate and seek a fairer return from the marketplace.

Next year will be the first of a planned seven-year transition period, with new policies to help farmers reduce their costs and improve their profitability, and help those who want to retire or leave the industry to do so with dignity, and to create new opportunities and support for new entrants coming into the industry.

Agenda:

  • Envrionment Secretary, George Eustice MP
  • Independent panel questions

Host: Sarah Mukherjee
