The annual confidence survey commissioned by BPEX should reach producers, and members of the allied industry, this week.
“I would urge anybody who receives a questionnaire to spend just a few minutes filling it in,” said BPEX head of technical, Andrew Knowles, adding that, in addition to providing a snapshot of the level of confidence in the industry, measured by the willingness to invest, the survey is also an opportunity for people to comment on the work being done by BPEX.
“It is important as it enables us to compare confidence in the industry now with previous years and to see how BPEX scores.”
The timing of this year’s survey coincides with the appointment of Jane King as the new chief executive of AHDB, of which BPEX is part, and the current interviewing of candidates to select a new BPEX chairman, to replace Stewart Houston who steps down in April after 13 years in the post.
Anybody who would like to take part in the survey but who doesn’t receive a questionnaire, can still take part by completing the online version, accessed via the following link:
