The Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) is a statutory levy board, funded by farmers, growers and others in the supply chain and managed as an independent organisation (independent of both commercial industry and of Government).
Our purpose is to inspire our farmers, growers and industry to succeed in a rapidly changing world.
Our vision is for a world-class food and farming industry inspired by, and competing with the best.
Our philosophy is that levy payers are at the heart of what we do. In order to deliver genuine levy payer focus there is a sector advisory committee (known as ‘sector board’) for each of the six commodity sectors represented by AHDB. Each sector board comprises levy payers, other stakeholders from the sector and independent members. The main AHDB Board has delegated the responsibility to each sector board to develop the most appropriate strategies to meet the challenges of the sector; to ensure the relevant levy rate is recommended in order to provide adequate funding for the required work; to monitor strategy implementation and to approve remedies where performance deviates from plan. The sector board members are appointed by AHDB.
The Brussels office exists to optimize flow of information and communication to and from EU institutions on behalf of AHDB and the wider industry. Its role consists in ensuring that the relevant sectors are well informed on issues and developments which have an impact on the operating environment, efficiency, profitability and in developing and maintaining a network through which these sectors can direct developments in their favour.
The EU Policy Advisor provides information and advice on all aspects of EU policy and legislation affecting the industry.
