Beanstalk Global – Women In Food & Farming -May Broadcast with Guest Speaker Karen Mercer

“Women in Food and Farming” is a group of professional women in food, agriculture and the land-based industries at all stages of their careers, who get together to discuss business issues, support each other via mentorship and advice, and help generate networks of contacts that might be useful to themselves and their businesses.

Founded in 2011 by Christine Tacon CBE, the group started back in 2011 with just five women and has now grown to over 500 members. Christine is known to many as the first Grocery Code Adjudicator and head of the Co-op’s farming business, she has just been appointed Chair of Assured Food Standards which operates the Red Tractor Assurance scheme amongst other roles.

In our current strange times, Beanstalk is very proud to offer our extensive platforms to allow Women in Food and Farming to continue their conversation and debate and to encourage new members ongoing to join them, be that on a virtual Broadcast basis.

In our May Broadcast, we have the great pleasure of Karen Mercer speaking to us about the very well-respected Worshipful Company of Farmers organisation.

Karen has been involved in the Agriculture industry all of her life, holding various positions including Directorship of Mercer Farming (1977-2006) and Regional Chairman of Coutts Bank Landowners Client Group (2007-2012). In respect to the Worshipful Company of Farmers she is a Liveryman, Court Assistant and Chairman of their Education Committee.  To view their website, CLICK HERE.
