Inside the September issue of Business Cornwall magazine, we meet Simon Birch, chief executive of Cornwall Farmers.
It has been a tough few years for the cooperative, but at its recent AGM, Birch spoke of “cautious optimism” for the future.
In this exclusive interview, he talks us through the turnaround, the upheavals and change in business plan, and the introduction of the Patch & Acre stores.
Also in the latest issue we take a look at the growth of the renewable energy sector in Cornwall and why, despite cuts to the Government’s Feed in Tariff, there are still fantastic savings to be made by businesses investing in schemes, from biomass to solar.
We also introduce a brand new column to Business Cornwall magazine – Just a Thought – from the pen of Unlocking Potential director, Mark Smith.
All this plus the regular news and features, while the Last Word goes to Cornwall Chamber’s Mel Colton-Dyer.
As well as the printed edition, Business Cornwall magazine is also available digitally on iPad, Android and Kindle Fire.
