Entering its eleventh year, the British Farming Awards is organised by Agriconnect, the parent company of Farmers Guardian, Arable Farming and Dairy Farmer and is supported by the supermarket chain, Morrisons.
CONSISTENTLY SERVING THE NATION
The prestigious awards, attended by hundreds of farmers and industry professionals, recognise British farmers and agricultural businesses for their commitment, resilience and innovation to an industry that consistently serves the nation.
Taking place at The Vox Venue in Birmingham on October 19th, the British Farming Awards incorporate 15 categories. The shortlisted finalist for the category of Agri-Tech Innovator of the Year, this award recognises accelerated growth, alongside farming support and solutions. The types of support and solutions proposed by the award category include increasing crop yields, streamlining data, reducing waste or lowering carbon footprints to name but a few.
FARMERS GUARDIAN EDITOR, OLIVIA MIDGLEY, SAID:
“The awards recognise individuals who are driving their businesses forward with integrity and acumen, against an ever-changing political and economic landscape. Our finalists demonstrate resilience and tenacity to exemplary standards.”
SOPHIE THROUP, TECHNICAL AND SUSTAINABILITY DIRECTOR OF MANUFACTURING, AT MORRISONS, SAID:
“As long-term supporters of British Farming, we want to thank farmers across the country for the work they continue to do in these challenging times. We are pleased to once again be supporting the British Farming Awards, recognising the effort, care, innovation and skills which British farmers put into making and providing the food we are all proud of.”
REVOLUTIONISING GLOBAL CROP PRODUCTION
This news follows IAG’s £10M fundraise completion last year after the company invested five years of rigorous research and development, alongside launching the GrowFrame™. Designed to revolutionise crop production on a global scale, the GrowFrame™ efficiently produces all types of crops, fruits and vegetables in small spaces and in large numbers.
With countless advantages for both the grower and the consumer, this highly productive method of farming allows crops to absorb oxygen and generate all the oils and sugars they need to taste delicious.
Eliminating the use of pesticides and providing faster crop growth with an extended shelf life, vertical farming also tackles the problems of soil degradation, food miles, seasonality and water.
The award shortlist reflects IAG’s unwavering dedication to sustainable practices, technological advancements and industry collaboration, alongside the company’s vision for a more sustainable future, one in which we can all feed ourselves without damaging the planet.
