I have just read Sylvia Macdonald’s Viewpoint (British Baker, 29 June) and the last two paragraphs were a breath of fresh air.

It is about time that this industry spoke up with one voice. For too long we have had various sectors just putting forward their own parochial points of view, without looking at the wider picture.

Which body will lead this move? It needs a heavyweight organisation or person from this industry to push this idea forward, so that we can talk to the government and bodies such as Improve with one voice.

You have raised the issue. It is now up to the industry to get its act together before it is too late.
