IT’S not just confirmed Yessers who should be looking to attend an event in Stirling on Monday week.

At 7pm on July 16, United Auctions at Stirling Agricultural Centre will be the venue for an event that will ask some serious questions about a huge part of the Scottish economy.

A panel of high-profile speakers will discuss the questions “what are the opportunities for Scotland’s powerhouse food and drink sector and what threats does it, as well as the wider agricultural and rural economies, face in the post-Brexit future?”

The event has been organised by Jim Fairlie and will allow an honest and fair discussion about what the future might look like for the fastest-growing sector in Scotland’s economy.

Chaired by BBC Out of Doors presenter Mark Stephen, the evnts will consist of a short presentation by each speaker before what will be a lively and engaged question and answer section at the end.

The panel could not be more knowledgeable. Taking part are Robert Graham, managing director of Grahams Family Dairies, Scotland’s largest independently owned dairy; James Withers, CEO of Scotland Food and Drink, the body established to promote the industry at home and abroad. Andrew McCornick, President of the National Farmers Union of Scotland will speak for the farming industry as will Jim Fairlie who founded Scotland’s Farmers’ Market movement, and now runs a catering business using his own beef and lamb.

Free tickets must be ordered through Eventbrite.
