Having said in my last column that part of my job is to find new opportunities for our industry, I have been travelling again and have just returned from China and Indonesia.

Let me tell you a little about Indonesia first, a land of opportunity.

Here is a country with a population of 250,000,000 people who are largely Muslim and of whom it is now reckoned that 84,000,000 fall in to the middle and upper classes with disposable incomes - that's more people than the UK population - and who, with a move from rural to urban areas, are looking for food quality and safety.

Their agriculture industry ranges from subsistence farming to large scale and for their development they look generally towards Australia and the USA; they do not realise that the UK has a highly developed agricultural industry with world class research and development that could significantly help their industries’ development.
