In the agricultural sector, policy changes bring major implications for the sector structure and size, as well as for the future prospects of individual farmers. We portray the expected effects of alternative policies.

Collaborate with policymakers on the meaning and interpretation of the numbers.


Connecting Agri & Food is regularly asked by governments to calculate expected effects of policies. These are mainly combinations of policies. Because of the in-depth knowledge of the agricultural sector and the rural area, we can perform substantiated qualitative and quantitative analyses and forecasts. Our knowledge is about the financial-economic position of companies, costs of investments, opportunities to incorporate new systems and differences between regions. Connecting Agri & Food works for a variety of clients. Check out the examples below.
