Increase in Agriculture & Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) Cereals and Oilseeds Levy

10 Jan 2011

The AHDB is consulting on proposals to increase the AHDB cereals and oilseeds levy from 2011/12, the first increase in 14 years.  Scotch Whisky distillers are significant supporters of cereals farming in Scotland and relies on the highest quality cereals to succeed in global markets.  The SWA's response expresses support for the proposed increase in the rate but would have preferred a planned programme of levy reviews over a clearly identified timescale.
