Annual congress IFAJ 2014
The IFAJ 2014 congress is being hosted for a record sixth time by the British Guild of Agricultural Journalists.
The British Guild is in 2014 celebrating its 70th anniversary.
The main congress is in Aberdeen, Scotland, from September 4-7. There is a pre-congress tour to London focusing on the UK's capital city feeds itself. The post-congress tour is to the Midlands and Wales.
Congress will be taking the theme of Innovations from a Small Island and we will be showcasing the very best of British agriculture and innovative nature of it.
Scotland is, of course, home to some of the world's best-known food and drink brands. Scotch whisky is the main export, selling more than £4billion of spirits annually around the globe. Scots call whisky the water of life – or in the Gaelic, Scotland's native tongue, it is called usquebaugh (ousk-a-bar).
But Scotland is also home to Scotch Beef, Scotch Lamb and some of the world's finest soft fruit, potatoes and vegetables.
We'll be telling you the story of all of these – and more – in 2014 and we look forward to welcoming you to Britain.
