Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council is currently in the process of developing an innovative Agriculture Strategy. The Agriculture Industry is the underpinning industry in the ABC borough and at the heart of so many businesses. The growth of mainstream agriculture including the agri-food industry, manufacturing, machinery and haulage/transportation of agri-commodities, are all interdependent on the success of the Agriculture Industry.
By taking a strategic approach to the agriculture industry, ABC council aims to help set the direction for all associated businesses, including agri-food, agri-business and agri-tech in the borough.
Feedback has already been gathered from farmers within the borough to help shape the strategy – and now we need to hear from agri-businesses to help continue this development. A survey has been developed to help collect the thoughts of those working within the agri-business sector.
Consultation with agri businesses across the agriculture industry is valuable in developing Councils Agriculture Strategy and provides agri businesses with an opportunity for input, leading to the development of creative and realistic recommendations to address opportunities and challenges for the industry within our Borough.
You are invited to take part in an online consultation which opens Monday 5 July 2021 until Friday 30 July 2021. We would be grateful for your feedback and to this opportunity to input, share your ideas and suggestions on the agriculture industry in our Borough.
