Sustainable Scale Up Cluster Annual Report 2021-22
Over the past few years, a recurring theme in the Welsh food and drink sector has been the need for businesses to be able to scale sustainably in a way that is both affordable and manageable. The Sustainable Scale Up Cluster’s vision and mission statement supports businesses in their growth, and is aligned with the sector strategy, “A Vision for the Food & Drink Industry from 2021 – Building on our success”, launched by Lesley Griffiths MS, Minister for Rural Affairs and North Wales, and Trefnydd in 2021.
We are pleased to share the Sustainable Scale Up Cluster’s first annual report which captures the main activities and themes from the first year of the cluster’s development. We have also offered some policy considerations based on the particular challenges which cluster members address as they look to scale up after the last very turbulent few years.
