These Five Principles For Change Are Crucial For UK Food & Farming

With geopolitical, inflationary and climatic turmoil on a global scale, every level of the food system is under scrutiny. Much of the ensuing debate is worthwhile, constructive and thought-provoking, despite some outlets preferring gloomy predictions of an apocalyptic nature.

Yet whichever way you choose to look at it, significant change is afoot across our food and farming sectors. It’s simply inevitable because agriculture is reaching its tipping point for transition.

If we accept that inevitability – that things will change, come what may – it doesn’t mean to say we can’t do anything about it. In fact, it set me thinking: if we know that change is coming, then what do we need to do to prepare for it?

I believe we must underpin this change with the five key points below: the Principles for Change:

1. Balance

2. Two-Tier Sustainability

3. Data

4. Security

5. Status

Appropriate and pragmatic application of farming technology is the common theme; more so in a world of massive labour shortages. The momentum achieved in recent years must be maintained and nurtured further with support and investment. Britain’s farming community is one of the best – perhaps the best – in the world. Let’s give them the tools to deliver and turn this ‘crisis’ into an opportunity.
