'Women in Food and Farming' is a group of professional women in food, agriculture and the land-based industries at all stages of their careers, who get together to discuss business issues, support each other via mentorship and advice, and help generate networks of contacts that might be useful to themselves and their businesses.
Founded by Groceries Code Adjudicator, Christine Tacon - CBE, the group started back in 2011 with just five women and has now grown to over 400 members.
The group tends to meet three times a year, normally in London, with two informal networking events with interactive presentations on relevant topics, followed by a light buffet and lots of networking. They also hold a sit-down dinner in the summer, with themed conversations running throughout. As the group expands, they will continue to adapt these events according to the feedback of members. The group is open to anyone who feels the network would be of benefit to them – to meet, network, offer moral support, seek out mentors, ask questions and share experiences. A key aim is to promote the sectors they represent and actively encourage others into the industry, be it those of the younger generation or those changing their career path.
In our current strange times, Beanstalk is very proud to offer our extensive platforms to allow Women in Food and Farming to continue their conversation and debate and to encourage new members ongoing be that on a virtual Broadcast basis
