Fram Farmers welcomes Local MP

Working closely with local farmers, Dr Dan was pleased to meet with local farming member consortium, Fram Farmers, where he heard feedback and concerns from members on all manners of topics, not least of all, how agricultural policy will be affected as Britain draws ever closer to leaving the European Union.

One of the most common concerns shared by members is the availability of seasonal and migrant labour, particularly in the fruit and vegetable sector. Other shared concerns were around current high standards of welfare, food traceability, environmental practice and food production costs.

Given that so many jobs here in Suffolk are entirely based, or linked to the food and drink production and agricultural sector, Dr Dan regularly meets with farmers and food & drink producers to support them as best he can.
