Agrifood facing "severe headwinds"
The biggest hitter media-wise for November so far was coverage of our George Scott Robertson Memorial Lecture, delivered by Lord Mark Price, a former UK Government Trade minister and also the former MD of Waitrose supermarket.
In his address, entitled UK Food Systems - Adapting to Change, Lord Price delivered a stark warning to farmers & food producers, saying everything they knew about the agrifood landscape in UK and Ireland was "about to change".
