Video content has taken the world by storm. And there’s no better way to communicate complex messages than through educational videos.

In the Agri-Foods industry, this means explaining everything from sustainable farming practices to food safety standards, and more. Crafting informative and compelling videos has the potential to help consumers develop a deeper understanding of the importance of the Agri-Foods industry.

However, creating videos that are both informative and engaging isn’t always an easy task. In this blog post, we’ve compiled some tips and tricks to help you create videos that will educate and engage your audience.

Identify Core Topics for Your Agri-Foods Business

Before you begin creating videos, you must identify the core topics for your Agri-Foods business. Start by figuring out which topics are most important to your business and how your videos can help to educate your audience.

This could include sustainable farming practices, innovative agricultural technology, and nutrition awareness. Knowing the topics that matter to your business will help you create videos that are focused and goal-driven.

Use Real-Life Farmer Stories

Farmer stories serve as powerful tools to connect emotionally with your audience. You can achieve this by featuring real-life farmer stories in your videos. From farm-to-fork journeys to life on the farm, these stories help to bring to life the often-overlooked side of the Agri-Foods industry.

Telling compelling stories will not only engage your viewers, but also help them understand the role of the Agri-Foods industry in their daily lives.

Incorporate High-Quality Footage

High-quality footage is essential when creating educational videos. Consider using drone footage to showcase farms and buildings, use animations to explain complex processes, and feature footage of production to illustrate the process.

Good visuals enhance your message, making it easier for your audience to understand and digest. High-quality footage is a great way to convey your message even without dialogue.

Feature Experts in the Industry

Expert interviews add credibility and build trust in your videos. Consider featuring agricultural scientists, nutritionists, and industry experts to give insights into the science behind the process.

Expert opinion provides extra validation and in-depth knowledge, adding context to difficult to explain topics. This is also a great way to educate your audience on these issues and to build trust with the community.

Make Use of Infographics

Infographics are a great way to break down complex topics in a visually appealing way. They allow you to convey the message without too much text, which can often be overwhelming for viewers.

When designing your infographic, focus on simplicity and stick to a colour scheme that is easy on the eye. This makes it easier for your audience to focus on the message you are trying to convey.


Calls-to-action help viewers to take the next steps, once they’ve watched your videos. You can encourage viewers to explore more about the Agri-Foods industry through website links or free resources, prompting them to take action and learn more about an issue.

It’s essential to include calls-to-action at the end of your video to make it easy for viewers to access more information on the topic.

Use Accessible Language

When creating educational videos, it’s essential to use accessible language that is understandable to your audience. Avoid technical jargon, even if you’re speaking to a scientific community.

Keep your message clear and concise, while focusing on the most important message to drive your point home.

Use a Variety of Formats

Different formats work for different channels and audiences. Short-form content can work well on social media, while longer-form content is better for in-depth exploration.

Gauge your audience and the channels you are promoting the content through before creating your video to determine the correct format. Ensure consistency in all of your videos while tailoring each to the specific platform.

Gather Feedback for Continuous Improvement

Listening to feedback and evaluating the impact of your videos can help to refine your messaging and presentation techniques.

Once your video has been launched, track the analytics to understand which video topics and formats resonate with your audience. Use this information to improve the next video that you create for maximum impact.


Crafting educational, engaging videos that resonate with your audience can take some effort, but with the right approach, it’s an effective way to increase awareness and encourage consumer confidence towards the Agri-Foods industry.

Use real-life stories, quality visual content, expert voices and appropriate language to form a reliable messaging suite. Incorporate the tips we’ve outlined above, and gather feedback to continuously refine your messaging suite.

By doing so, you can create engaging, informative videos that will leave a lasting impression on your viewers.
