Whites Oats Grower Day
Our Annual Oat Field Meeting with Whites Oats.
Come along and learn more about the organic oats market, see the spring oat trials being hosted at Abbey Home Farm and how they compare to the trial sites.
For many of our farmers oat have become a very important crop in their rotation in part due to the strong relationship we have developed with Whites Oats. Come along and find out more about the future prospect for the organic oat market.
James Mathers. Whites Oats MD will be providing an update on the organic oat market. Steven McCallister will be giving us a breakdown of the oat quality through the mill this season and we'll be hearing about new opportunities that are forthcoming.
We will also be joined by Danielle from the Marketing team and so can discuss how we can better "sell" the fabulous story of our supply chain to brands and consumers to strengthen loyalty to Whites Oats.
We see this as an important part of our relationship with Whites and would encourage you to come along, meet you customer and learn more about their future oat needs.
