Dr Dan voices support for our local farmers during visit to AtlasFram

Dr Dan with Richard Anscombe, CEO of the AtlasFram Group in FramlinghamOne of the most enjoyable parts of Dan’s work in Suffolk is supporting our local farmers and food and drink producers. Last week, Dan visited the AtlasFram Group in Framlingham during a busy day of visits to local groups and people in Suffolk. Dan spoke about some of the challenges facing our local farmers and the importance of encouraging more people to buy locally produced food and drink.

The AtlasFram Group has grown to become one of the largest farmer cooperatives in the UK, and helps to save farmers time and money by pooling together its member’s collective buying power to purchase essential farming products such as fertiliser, seed and fuel as reduced prices. The group was founded over 50 years ago, and has grown to represent the commercial interests of over 1250 farmer Members across the UK.

Dan is a great supporter of our local farmers and agricultural organisations and he would like to thank Ashley Gilman, Group Business Manager & Tim Styles, Livestock Manager at AtlasFram, for inviting him to visit.
