Agri Food

Agri food is an important sector for South Kesteven and many of it neighbouring districts within Lincolnshire. Agriculture and horticulture contribute more than £5 billion Gross Value Added (GVA) to the UK economy each year and employ more than half a million people, mostly in rural areas. In Lincolnshire more than 1 in 10 people are currently employed in food and farming, and together they contribute nearly 13% of the county’s GVA, which equates to more than £1 billion each year.

The county’s food and farming sector is not just of importance to the people of Lincolnshire, nearly a quarter of all land used for horticulture in England is in Lincolnshire and for peas, beans, vegetables and salads the proportion is higher.

South Kesteven is home to many farms, food production and food processing companies.
