About us

The Team began in June 2000, driven by the Cornwall Agri-food Council who identified the need for a team of specialists to ensure the delivery of their strategic objectives. Originally the team were funded by the Objective One Programme and were hosted by Cornwall Enterprise. During the 2000 – 2008 period our role was to facilitate applications to the Objective One Programme from the agricultural, horticultural, food and land based industries of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, as well as acting as the administrative body for the Cornwall Agri-food Council. 

Objective One came to a close in September 2008; however over the existence of the programme, we provided initial guidance to over 2,023 rural businesses and provided in depth support to over 120 rural businesses. In addition to this, we assisted projects secure over £68 million of development support for projects as diverse as cheese processing and machinery sharing. From October 2008 the work of the team has continued with funding secured from Cornwall Council, The Rural Development Programme for England (RDPE) and more latterly Cornwall Development Company.
