In June 2006, DEFRA announced the radical restructuring of the existing levy boards. The new levy board structure will come into place in April 2008 (beef and lamb (England), cereals, horticulture, milk, pigs, and potatoes). In addition there will be a separate red meat body for Scotland and for beef and lamb in Wales.

The structure and functions of the new Levy Board UK and the Sector Companies will depend on the outcome of the currently ongoing Fresh Start exercise.

Fresh Start aims to (i) identify the needs of levy payers and (ii) consider how these needs can be best met. It is a bottom up exercise, in other words it aims to consider first and foremost the views of levy payers to ensure that their needs are realistically reflected in the new arrangements.

This is your chance to contribute! For your opportunity to input into Fresh Start please go to the following link –
