Allied industry manifestos

Collinson Plc

I've seen farming across sectors, throughout the United Kingdom, and around the world.

After 30 years in agriculture, and now, as a director at Collinson — a cornerstone agricultural company which, in itself, has worked alongside farmers now for almost 60 years — I've found the importance of organisations like the NPA, which work tirelessly, every day, for the good of the sector, cannot be underestimated.

I put myself forward as someone who is passionate about British agriculture and those who live it. By liaising with producers across the United Kingdom for the past three decades, and visiting farms worldwide, I've gained a deep understanding of common and individual challenges faced by farmers on a daily basis.

If elected, I believe my cross-sector and international knowledge could serve as an asset to the NPA in the challenges that may arise as Brexit negotiations progress.

Our pig industry is something to be proud of. It is imperative NPA retains strong members with the reach and knowledge to continue moving the sector forward. I would be privileged to have the opportunity to contribute to maintaining and developing such a key industry.
