Waitrose Technical Conference and Waitrose Farm Assesment Report Launch

WFA Report launch with attendance from our Academic Partners – Tuesday 12th November 2013 – Evening session from 5pm and Waitrose Technical Conference – Wednesday 13th November 2013 – Arrival from 8.30am


The evening session on Tuesday 12th November will be the official launch of the Waitrose Farm Assessment (version 1) Report (WFA) 2013.

The WFA is an initiative started in 2011 by the Waitrose Agronomy Group allowing suppliers to assess growers against a range of questions covering safety, sustainability and quality.

From the results of the WFA we have gained a clear idea of future challenges. To address these we are working closely with academic partners to identify development opportunities and long term solutions.

We are very grateful that a large number of our academic partners are able to attend the launch of the WFA Report evening to promote the collaboration between Retailers, Suppliers, Growers and Academics. We hope the evening provides a good opportunity for you all to discuss existing and future development opportunities.
