Covid-19 impact

While Covid-19 has certainly proved challenging throughout 2020 and into 2021 for many sectors of the economy, agriculture has kept the food supply chain going and Agriland has stayed on top of agri-news.

The shift towards remote working and an increased emphasis on online platforms has resulted in an exceptionally positive year for the company and has resulted in the progression of its growth plans.

Managing director of Agriland Media, Cormac Farrelly said: “We’re delighted to be in the position we are in, after a challenging year for many. Agriland Media has experienced a phenomenal 12 months in terms of growth and evolution.

“As a result of this growth, we are now in a position to expand the team even further across a range of functions within the business, bringing the full-time staff number to more than 40.

Agriland prides itself on providing up-to-date, relevant information to farmers and the agri-business sector in an easy, accessible way, simply with the touch of a finger and our ambition is to continue to grow our offering over the short to long-term.”
