The Agri-Food sector, covering agriculture, food manufacturing and processing is one of the county’s key economic assets. 70% of the nation’s Fish is processed in Greater Lincolnshire as well as the county holding more Grade 1 agricultural land than anywhere else in England. The growing Low Carbon Economy is already worth £1.2bn per annum and employs over 12,000 people and the south bank of the Humber lies at the centre of an emerging offshore wind market. The county’s expanding health and care sector, employing 58,000 people, supports an ageing population across dispersed towns and villages across Greater Lincolnshire.
Across all sectors of the economy, business has an important role in fulfilling the ambitions of the SDGs.
