Statement on proposed badger cull

Read below the Co-operative Group's statement regarding the proposed badger cull.

Animal welfare issues are important to The Co-operative Group and its members and customers, as is ensuring a long-term, sustainable future for British farmers.

  1. The Co-operative Farms is one of the country’s largest farmers, and owns and manages around 50,000 acres using exemplary biodiversity programmes such as Habitat Heroes. None of the farms owned or managed by The Co-operative Group are located in the trial areas.
  2. None of the farmers within The Co-operative Dairy Group are located in the proposed trial areas, however, as we do not operate a segregated milk supply chain, in common with other retailers a small proportion of our milk may have come from farms in the proposed trial areas.
