1529: Future English Beef Supply

This paper has been summarised from the Eblex publication, ‘Balancing the market - securing the Future for English Beef Supply’

Year of Publication2012

Ultimately, retailers will need to operate more closely with their supply chain to safeguard against empty shelves and to continue to offer the best choice to consumers
