17/6/22 - Scottish Good Food Nation bill, salmon and rising farming costs

What does Scotland's Good Food Nation bill mean for farmers?

Another day, another food strategy, this time for Scotland where Members of the Scottish parliament have just passed the ‘Good Food Nation’ bill. But what do these new food strategies mean for farmers?

All this week we're talking about salmon on the programme. The Scottish government commissioned a major review into the industry and say that in the coming months they’ll be setting out a ‘vision’ for salmon farming.

And we hear how farmers in Northern Ireland are responding to rising costs impacting fuel, feed and fertiliser prices, which have all risen sharply over the past few months.
