Farm and Agriculture

When it comes to business continuity planning, agricultural businesses are no different to other manufacturers or producers.  

You rely on sourcing and deploying inputs e.g. feed, fertiliser and labour, as well as the smooth running of plant and equipment so you can produce your product. But what would you do if a major incident caused such significant disruption that you couldn’t produce your product? Potentially resulting in losses for you and your customers.

With agricultural businesses playing a key part in the farm to fork supply chain, it’s important not only for your business but for your customers that you can recover from an incident as quickly as possible.

We know recovering from disruption or an incident can be challenging, but if you have a business continuity plan in place this will help you to identify potential single points of failure and highlight measures that could help to limit any impact to your business.

So, to help support our farming customers, we’ve partnered with business continuity experts Inoni, to produce a range of tools to help make sure you’re prepared should the worst happen. In our toolkit below you’ll be able to:

  • Assess your current resilience using our simple business resilience health check
  • Identify possible areas you need to address
  • Access free downloadable templates to help you create a working business continuity plan
  • Read our latest news articles which highlight some of the main risks you need to consider when assessing your businesses resilience.
