Description

We will be holding our 2019 open event on Wednesday 16 October at the National Railway Museum in York.

As well as explaining our work, we have speakers from different areas of farming and food production, marketing and regulation. Our aim for the open event is to give the public a chance to get a fuller understanding of the work we do and have a chance to ask any questions.
