Key topics on the agenda included bovine TB, a greater uptake by public bodies of Welsh produce and the immediate settlement of outstanding BPS payments.
“We highlighted the role of farming in directly employing 60,000 people in Wales, generating a gross output of nearly £1.5bn,” said union president, Stephen James.
“Farming is the cornerstone of the £6bn food supply chain which employs in total around 18 per cent of the Welsh workforce and the axis around which rural communities thrive.
“Presently the industry is under pressure as a result of a global downturn in commodity price and we acknowledge that the Welsh Government cannot influence global markets - but there are areas where it can help Welsh farmers.
“We want to see increasing amounts of Welsh food being served in Welsh schools, hospitals, prisons and to troops based in Wales.
"The government can play a leading role in making this happen, ensuring that greater emphasis is made on PGI status and assurance standards when purchasing decisions are being made.”
The need for all remaining Basic Payment Scheme payments to be made without further delay was another key area.
“I am concerned at the continued delay in 2015 BPS payments for many cross border farmers and it must be urgently addressed,” said Mr James.
“Governments on both side of the Wales-England border, must work to ensure that this matter is resolved to prevent any repeat delays in future years.
“Bovine TB also continues to cast a dark cloud over the industry with the latest figures showing a 27 per cent year-on-year increase in the number of reactors.” he added.
“We asked the Cabinet Secretary to look at best practice from across the world with a view to implementing a comprehensive TB eradication strategy for Wales.”
John Davies, the union’s deputy president, urged Mrs Griffiths to consider introducing a small grant scheme to support investment on farm in new equipment and technology, but ensuring the scheme was easily accessible to allow widespread uptake.
