AHDB are hosting four live online events for levy payers on Thursday, 9 November.​

Their sector chairs will take you through the past year and how we’ve met the priorities levy payers set via last year's Shape the Future vote, highlighting the successes.

They will also look to the future and how a proposed rise in the levy will be used to benefit your sector and the industry.

Each event will end with a live Q&A session where you can ask questions directly to the sector chair and the panel.

The event times are:
  • 10:00am for Cereals & Oilseeds
  • 12:00pm for Dairy
  • 2:00pm for Beef & Lamb
  • 4:00pm for Pork
All will be streamed live on TFF in the relevant sections.
