The AIC Seed Dinner 2021 was planned to take place on 2 nd December 2021.

AIC is pleased to be able to confirm that following lobbying from voluntary schemes seeking recognition under the recast Renewable Energy Directive, the European Commission has agreed to publish a list of schemes that have received a "positive preliminary assessment".
AIC is increasing its focus on issues that will affect Members over the next 10 years, at both a policy and practical level. Our work is underpinned by three pillars; competitiveness, productivity, and environment. Combined, these pillars enable the agri-supply industry to demonstrate and work towards greater sustainability.
