Brexit: What next for Scottish agricultural co-operatives?

The impact of Brexit on Scottish farmers and agricultural co-operatives was discussed at a conference organised by the Scottish Agricultural Organisation Society.

The session, which brought together more than 100 agri-c0-op directors, examined export markets, migrant labour, tariffs and the implications of leaving the Common Agricultural Policy.

James Withers, of Scotland Food and Drink – a non-proft organisation which helps food and drink firms increase profitability, sounded an upbeat note.

But he warned that while the Scottish brand enjoyed a strong global reputation, it depended too few markets around the world – with the exception of Scotch whisky.
