Martin Collison tells about the huge potential economic impact of Saline Flooding on Lincolnshire Agriculture and the Food Industry on SalFar kick-off meeting in Lincoln 25-27th September 2017.

Agriculture is the first part of the food supply chain and if the potential impacts on food processing, logistics and marketing are added the value of food chain economic production protected by coastal defence rises to over £550m of GVA and 7,600 jobs.

Indirect and induced economic effects, through spending by those employed in agriculture and food production in the wider economy, increases the potential economic value protected further to £660m of GVA and over 9,100jobs.
