    Two Harper students selected as NFU Student and Young Farmer Ambassadors

    30 August 2019

    Sophie Thornton, who is due to graduate in September, and Sioned Davies, a third-year agri-food student, have both been selected to take part in the NFU's Student and Young Farmer Ambassador programme. 

    Sophie has just finished her course, BSc (Hons) Agriculture with Marketing. She completed her dissertation on Blockchain in the poultry supply chain and wants to work towards improving communication between the farmer and retailer.

    Sioned is studying BSc (Hons) Agri-food Marketing with Business and has just finished her placement year at Co-op in Manchester. She is currently creating a business plan to launch her own brand of Welsh meatballs.

    The NFU Student and Young Farmer ambassador programme is in its first year and will give participants the chance to engage with the work the NFU does and meet like-minded individuals.

    Ambassadors will attend events such as Lord Mayor's Show in London, as well as the NFU conference in Birmingham just to name a few.
