TIAH mentioned at NFU Conference 2023

At the recently concluded NFU conference,  we were delighted that key speakers highlighted the significance of TIAH amidst the backdrop of the theme for this year, ‘Feeding a changing world’. 

Farming Minister Mark Spencer emphasised the crucial role of farmers and acknowledged the importance of initiatives such as TIAH. Minister Spencer stated that TIAH is just one of the many steps taken to secure the future of farming, with the government focusing on a range of actions including improving retention to developing skills.

Members of the TIAH team attended the conference where business leaders held sessions on topics close to TIAH’s aims including the topic of business resilience.  Ash Amirahmadi OBE, Managing Director, Arla Foods UK and Assad Malic, Chief Communications and Sustainability Officer, Greene King gave an excellent insight in to their own businesses and how they build resilience. Despite both working in large corporate organisations, their lessons around incentives, collaborative working and, perhaps most importantly, living their company values to recruit and retain staff are all options that we know are just as applicable to farmers and growers, regardless of the size of their businesses. This will be an area TIAH will be supporting as it develops.
