- <h2>Farm Forward</h2>
We believe that the strength and diversity of people in our supply chain enables us to build a better and stronger team. So that’s why we’re working to embed diversity and inclusion in all aspects of the Progressive Young Farmer programme. This starts with formal Diversity, Equity and Inclusion training for all students alongside a number of other training and networking opportunities.
