LAS and Greater Lincolnshire LEP Join ‘Food from England’ Group

A powerful new group has been formed to give England’s food and drink industry a strong collective voice in the wake of Covid-19 and Brexit.

The Lincolnshire Agricultural Society along with Greater Lincolnshire LEP have joined the collaboration group to support food & drink producers.

Food from England has been created from more than 30 regional groups which represent over 43,000 businesses. It will specifically support small and medium sized businesses by providing a unified platform from which to communicate the industry’s needs to relevant government agencies and departments. It will also highlight the impact of Covid-19 and Brexit and identify ways to help the industry navigate its way through both, while encouraging consumers to keep supporting their local food and drink producers.

Food from England will develop strategies for producers and artisans to help increase sales through independent retailers and agri-food tourism. This will be enhanced by linking directly to appropriate agencies and public bodies for access to business intelligence that will benefit micro and small producers.

Recommendations will also be developed for the retention of new customers, stimulation of business growth and strengthening of regional identities without compromising national opportunities.
