We would like your views on proposals to reform the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB)

Consultation description

This is a joint consultation between the Welsh, UK, Scottish and Northern Ireland governments.

We are consulting on proposals for a reformed and more accountable AHDB.

The draft proposals will:

  • deliver a more efficient organisation
  • improve accountability to levy paying sectors by giving them a right to vote every 5 years on levy paying sector work programmes
  • respect the outcome of the horticulture and potato sector ballots to end statutory horticulture and potato levies from April 2022
