AHDB – Change Programme and Strategy 2021-2026

Having welcomed a much-needed review on what AHDB does and taken time to study the report, National Craft Butcher’s Chief Executive Roger Kelsey says, “Other than a cursory glance at environment, health and nutrition to promote red meat eating to consumers, it’s difficult to find anything in the report that points to the crucial role Craft Butchers and Small Abattoir’s play in improving animal welfare, supporting short local supply chains or developing craft skills and training; essential for a highly skilled workforce in a post COVID-19, post Brexit era and one with banned live exports and increased processing of red meat carcases for meat products to export or supply into the home market”.
National Craft Butchers represents both direct and indirect levy payers and looks forward to working with AHDB on all aspects of their 5 year strategy but especially those involving sustainability and promoting British meat at home, something our members are a vital part of.
