For the First time, Bord Bia will be hosting a Business Breakfast Briefing at this Plant Fair. This seminar is designed to assist production, service and retail businesses in the horticulture sector and will address issues encountered by business owners in ‘Successfully weathering this stormy trading environment’. It will aim to address how business owners can identify and action some of the controllable variables in their operation, so that the commercial health of the business improves. Tactics such as extending the revenue cycle more closely with the overhead cycle will be teased out.
