Meetings will kick off on Monday (March 19) and be held by the NFU until April 18 as part of the union’s Framework for Success.

 

NFU president Minette Batters said the NFU wanted to make sure ‘each and every one’ of its members had an opportunity to have their say.

 

Profitable, productive and resilient

“This consultation is one of the most significant developments for the UK Government’s agriculture policy in decades and paves the way for a new domestic agricultural policy to be created,” she said.

“It is vital this new policy ensures that British farming has a profitable, productive and resilient future.

 

“Together, we can ensure that government hears the voice of farming and supports our vital role in delivering safe, traceable and affordable food to Britain as well as protecting our unique countryside.”
