Holbeach Hurn arable farmer Mark Tinsley was sector lead for Greater Lincolnshire LEP’s Agri-food Sector Plan 2014-2020.

He said: “Greater Lincolnshire is fortunate to be home to the UK’s largest and most progressive food sector, with dynamic businesses and well developed supply chains.

“Our agri-food sector is truly a national leader in this rapidly growing sector, but we must not rest on our laurels. The coming decades will bring many challenges and it’s important that Greater Lincolnshire is ready to face them.

“Our plan for the agri-food sector is ambitious, but we are confident it is achievable.”

The area’s agri-food businesses are to be consulted on the new plan.
