OLYMPIC SHOWCASE Time for British produce to shine p6-7


British farmers urged to seize new opportunities rOperating in a truly global marketplace

rSurviving without Government subsidy By Alistair Driver FARMING Minister Jim Paice has challenged British farmers to ‘set the industry on fire’by leaving the past behind and embracing the opportunities on offer in today’s marketplace. Speaking at the Oxford Farming Conference, Mr Paice laid out his vision for British farming based on seeking out new global markets, innovating using all available technologies and ultimately thriving without the support of direct subsidies. He also revealed Defra would be hosting an ‘innovation summit’ in London in March followed by a series of ‘practical’regional events. He dismissed the view of farming ‘as a quaint old industry’ and urged farmers to look to the future. “We can keep the cosy image of Buttercup in the field producing a few litres a day and the bucolic farmer leaning on his gate We can sentimentalise farmers as small players in a market dominated by supermarkets at home and multinational conglomerates abroad,”he said. “Or we can set this industry on fire and take the opportunities and face the reality they provide.”

He insisted his comments were not about advocating ‘big, corporate’ farms over ‘small, family’ businesses: “It is about attitude: whether to pine for the old days of government intervention and protection, or to face the challenges.” At the heart of his speech was the need for the industry to use ‘the best research, technology and knowledge transfer we can get’ to help boost production, while protecting resources and biodiversity.

Beef’s unique selling point

Driving ambition Mr Paice identified the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) as the ‘professional body’ to drive the industry forward in this area and had asked AHDB chairman John Godfrey to address how this could be achieved. He stressed the industry needed to accept it was competing in a global food marketplace and to seek out export opportunities ‘where we are most competitive’. Shadow Defra Secretary Mary Creagh said food was ‘one of the defining political issues of this century’, but criticised the Government for failing to address all the issues surrounding it. Highlighting the role farming and food can play in stimulating economic recovery, she warned of increasing food poverty in the UK against a backdrop of rising food prices, exacerbated, she claimed, by commodity speculation. NFU president Peter Kendall said he was heartened by Mr Paice’s message.
