As part of the work of the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB), of which HDC is a division, the organisation sometimes needs to consult with its industry sectors on matters impacting levy payers and stakeholders. A consultation is currently being held to seek the views of levy payers and industry organisations on the AHDB Corporate Plan and the more detailed divisional plans. Within the draft plan is the proposal to increase the potato levy by 1.96% and for the levy rates across the other five AHDB sectors to remain unchanged for the year ahead (April 2015 to March 2016).
All of the documents required to provide feedback can be found via the links below. The deadline for any comments on the proposed levy rates or the draft Plan is 5pm on Tuesday 13 January 2015. Responses should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
