RED Talks

Rural Policy Group is the home of RED Talks - Rural Economic Development Talks. The world is in a state of flux and RED Talks will address the issues rural business owners, farmers and landowners are facing. RPG and its professional partners will explore the current issues facing rural businesses, seek interim solutions and look towards the future of the rural economy and rural policy to shore up rural now and for generations to come.

RED Talks are virtual debates held on Zoom and last approximately one hour. Information and advice from a panel of politicians, business people, professional advisors and policy wonks drawn from rural industries is followed by an open floor for attendees to ask questions or offer their own contribution to the topic. It's one third us; two thirds you.

Food Price Wars: Is food in the UK expensive?

The race to the bottom pricing we have experienced in food retail is not sustainable for farmers and food producers, and international trade deals opening up the UK to cheap imports will compounded the issue. Join us to discuss how business can thrive in a challenging climate, the importance of fair margins and how we educate people to value food - in partnership with Fourayes.
