John Shropshire, OBE brings AgriTech to the CPIER table

John Shropshire, OBE, Chairman of G's Fresh, AgriTech company

We’d like to congratulate John Shropshire, OBE, Chairman of G’s Fresh on his appointment as a commissioner for the Cambridge and Peterborough Independent Economic Review (CPIER). John’s inclusion on the commission will ensure that AgriTech is considered as part of the economic future of our region.  This is great news for the growing AgriTech Cluster around Cambridge!

 

 

John Shropshire, OBE, commented: “The recent Industrial Strategy and Science and Innovation Audit has strongly focussed on agriculture and AgriTech. Being able to leverage our existing expertise at G’s Fresh across the broader region, as well as raise the potential of a new cluster for the region is very exciting.”

The purpose of the Review is to help the greater Cambridgeshire and Peterborough area consider the case for greater fiscal devolution and powers to unlock the delivery of major infrastructure, including showing how the area delivers benefits to the rest of UK.  You can read more about it here.

We’ll be watching out for the interim report and will post updates here.
