THERE WAS SUCCESS IN THE AGRI-INNOVATION DEN THIS YEAR FOR FOUR OF OUR FINALISTS.

 

Six finalists pitched their business ideas at Wootton Park, Warwickshire, in late September, with four receiving a firm commitment of business development help.

Our four judges (Neil Thackray, CEO of Briefing Media; Emma Penny, Briefing Media group editor; Will Jackson, agricultural development manager for The Co-Operative Food Group and Jake Freestone, manager of Overbury Farms) were all in agreement the day had been truly inspiring.
 
Neil Thackray said: "The quality of businesses and level of innovation was extraordinary. Every single one for them was doing something which will change how people in agriculture work."
 

Talks will now be held with our other two finalists, who were unable to make the pitching day, and we will be following all of our finalists' progress over the coming months.

*The voting results are purely advisory; the outcome of the voting will be presented to the judges for consideration but the ultimate investment decisions will remain in the hands of the judges and their recommendations.
