    Tesco is offering farmers of the future a 12 month package of training, business planning advice, supply chain experience and networking opportunities.

    Vicky attended the interview for this exciting opportunity and will find out in the coming weeks wether she has been chosen to take part as one of the future 15.

    The Foundation has been established to help bright, talented, determined young people make their own start in the world of agriculture, whether that’s taking over the family farm, embarking on a new business venture, or entering the industry for the first time.

    A place on the programme will give you leadership training, business planning advice, mentoring, and supply chain experience. You also have the opportunity to look beyond our shores at farming in other countries.


    Funded by Tesco the Foundation is unique in its tailored, candidate-led approach. Successful applicants will be able to choose a programme suited to their own aspirations and business needs.

    Richard Marris, Commercial Director, Fresh Foods at Tesco said:

    “We’re committed to the success of British agriculture, and we want the next generation of farmers, with all their energy, talent, and dedication, to be working with us for decades to come.
    Whether it’s guidance on succession planning, advice on financial management, or providing access to a world-leading supply chain, we’ve developed the Future Farmer Foundation to be a strong base from which the farmers of tomorrow can launch themselves onto their chosen paths.”
