NFU Elections 2018: Minette Batters

NFU officeholder - minette batters_42839

Position nominated for: President 

A pivotal time for British farming. If elected I want to lead your officeholder team, to focus on four priority areas for a commercially business-focused NFU:

  1. A dynamic and growing F&G membership: NFU must be relevant to its entire membership across England and Wales, supporting differing sectorial demands that help achieve successful, profitable businesses. 
  2. Supply Chain, Consumer, Environmental, Educational and Skills Campaigns: Farming Matters to every citizen. I want to empower a new era of activist campaigners, build new alliances that reposition where food and farming sits in the eyes of the nation.
  3. UK Fair Trade:  Strengthening farmers’ and growers’ routes to market, defining procurement rules, ensuring FAIR returns from transparent supply chains.
  4. Trade, Labour, Regulation and Agricultural policy : In addition to prioritising these policies there is an urgent need for a British Agriculture Trade Policy Manifesto given Trade will shape our landscape for decades.
