Helping food producers with their business

We are running a programme of training for farmers and related food businesses in the West Midlands to help raise their skills and knowledge.

The focus is on three key sectors: beef and sheep, poultry meat and eggs, and horticultural produce. The aim is to provide professional development to deliver sustainable business benefits to the West Midlands agricultural and horticultural industries.

A programme of courses is being offered which are intended to equip individuals in farming, primary processing and produce marketing with the skills and knowledge to meet the demands and expectations of the marketplace, and keep up–to–date with latest developments.

Each programme of courses comprises several modules which delegates can attend as part of a tailored training approach to each subject area. Each module represents one day of training. The course modules are available as scheduled or bespoke training. The programme is supported by LandSkills West Midlands, and is managed by Lantra on behalf of Advantage West Midlands, as part of the Rural Development Programme for England (RDPE).
