A NEW service to help make small and medium-sized agri-food businesses more profitable is to be launched this week (w/e May 28) by business consultant Aubourn.
 
The Food Industry Consultancy Service is aimed at start-up businesses and those aiming to expand.
 
Farmers planning to move into processing or groups of producers wanting to develop a marketing initiative would be key customers, said Aubourn‘s Steven Mackintosh.
 
“The agri-food industry is in a period of dynamic change and no business can afford to stand still,” he added.
 
Advisors had been drawn from across the industry to give clients access to a range of expertise, said Mr Mackintosh.
 
Services offered include marketing and product development, planning and strategy, technical assistance and staff development and training.
