Worcestershire LEP has helped establish Agri Tech West which covers a diverse range of agriculture, horticulture and food processing businesses as well as being a microcosm of the UK sector and its supply chain as a whole. It makes good business sense to accelerate the scale-up potential of Worcestershire companies by joining forces with other industry leaders, LEPs and research institutions. The WLEP shares a common ambition to instigate business-led-applied research and technology development projects, that drive innovation and provide a real testing ground to enhance the Sector’s future growth, development and delivery.
Internationally renowned agri-food businesses are based in the area because of its agricultural and horticultural base, supply chain specialisms, good connectivity, and access to labour markets and consumers. The WLEP is committed to working collaboratively with partners across the industry to help SME businesses increase productivity, growth and global competitiveness while raising the AgriTech West profile to attract inward investment to this important and growing UK sector.
