Just seen the the latest Red Tractor advert on you tube, need I say more it looks like it's made by kids & just about suitable for the CBBs kids channel, I'm sure we would be far better paying our subscriptions to McDonalds!

With ever increasing online shopping does anyone really believe that shoppers are going to find & take any notice of a tiny poxy union jack RT sign on the item or are they simply going to look at the price, any questionable benefit to farmers has long gone!

From what I’ve seen, they’re much more likely to look for a Union Jack than a RT logo

Obviously don’t care about any feed back as the YouTube video won’t allow comments. Missed opportunity surely 🙁

Serves a purpose. Explains what some of the assurance means. 30 seconds isn't long to deliver a message.

When there was derogatory comments over the AHDB advert, people moaned that they weren't replied to or dealt with.

RT turn off comments and people moan again.

Well if they look for union flag won't they see it on the RT stuff as well?


Would liked to have seen more of the British being pushed and how they are over and above imports.
 
The advert seems to achieve what it should.

How do others propose you get across messages on reassurance on traceability and food safety across all of the sectors in 30 seconds? I couldn't come up with anything better.

And you seriously believe that 95% of the general public give a fig about Red Tractor (ignoring what they may say in any survey,) they are only interested in the price it costs & going forward that will be even more important, Red Tractor is simply a fools paradise.

But this is a thread where everyone is slating an advert it isn't about whether people care about RT or not. The advert is fine.

The advert is what it is. Its fine

I don't see why we have to pay for it though because RT don't produce any added value for me
Why bother being in RT then, if your customers are happy to give you the same price with and without? Plenty of us aren’t and accept a reduced customer base or a bit more work with selling.

AHDB has announced yesterday it is winding down significant activities on behalf of the horticulture and potatoes sectors.

While still awaiting a decision on the future by Ministers in England, Scotland and Wales, AHDB wants to reassure levy payers their views have been heard following recent ballots in the two sectors.

AHDB is now stopping programmes of work that could be restarted in the future by grower associations, individual growers or the supply chain. This work includes for example, export market access and promotional international trade event work, consumer marketing campaigns and market pricing and insight information. AHDB will continue to deliver limited emergency work on pests and diseases, including the Extension of Authorisation for Minor Use (EAMU)’s and some...
