HGCA supports the UK cereal and oilseeds industry in improving its competitiveness in the UK and overseas markets. It is one of six sector organisations under the umbrella of the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB). The HGCA is funded by statutory levy paid by growers, dealers and processors of cereals and by growers of oilseeds.
AHDB is a statutory levy-funded organisation with the duty to help improve the efficiency and competitiveness of various agriculture and horticulture sectors in parts of the UK representing about 75% of total UK agricultural output.
