Young Farmers are being offered the opportunity to prove how important their work is – by taking part in an innovative research project about supply chains.
Members of the National Federation of Young Farmers’ Clubs (NFYFC) are invited to take part in the project, called “MyChainReaction”, to help researchers and government understand supply chains, particularly within the agricultural industry. The project is being led by Professor Jan Godsell of the University of Warwick.
Young Farmers can use this project to post stories or upload pictures or videos demonstrating the important role they play within the supply chain and explain how their produce ends up with the consumer.
Supply chains within agriculture have received plenty of attention in recent weeks, particularly in light of the recent crisis within the dairy industry.
Lynsey Martin, NFYFC AGRI chairwoman said: “We have seen significant changes to the dairy sector in recent weeks because the supply chain has become more visible to the public. They now have a better understanding of why dairy farmers are struggling to make ends meet in the current market and progress has been made to improve the situation. It would be really good if we could keep up this momentum across the whole of the agricultural industry, as well as doing our bit to help highlight food chain issues back to government.”
