Branch J024: Agriculture & Horticulture Development Board

Agriculture & Horticulture Development Board

The Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) has a pivotal role to help make the six commodity sectors we support more competitive and sustainable.

We undertake research and development (R&D) and farm-level knowledge transfer (KT) and knowledge exchange (KE) activity. We also provide essential market information to improve supply chain transparency, deliver marketing promotion activities to help stimulate demand and also work to maintain and develop export markets. 

The Branch representatives and members are served by Prospect's Chertsey Office.  Through their Negotiations Officer, they have access to the full range of legal, research and administrative support that Prospect has to offer. 

The AHDB branch also cover MLCSL for whom Prospect have formal collective bargaining and local and full time representatives meet with the employer on a regular basis.
