The EFFP presented an industry-wide strategy on how to develop collaborative activities across the farming and food industry and how to develop world class Farmer Controlled Businesses (FCBs).

This strategy is the culmination of six months’ work researching collaboration and outlining the way forward. The research focused on all sectors of the food and farming industries including producers, FCBs, processors and retailers.

The research suggests the roles that government, the food chain and industry stakeholders can play to deliver a profitable, effective food and farming sector.

NFU President Tim Bennett said: “Sir Don Curry highlighted collaboration as a corner stone of his strategy for sustainable food and farming and the NFU wholeheartedly agrees with this.

“The NFU is fully committed to assisting in the implementation of the Curry Commission recommendations. As a stakeholder in the EFFP, the NFU looks forward to working with them to help promote collaboration across all sectors as a means to ensuring a profitable future for English farmers and growers.

“The NFU believes that practical co-operation and collaboration will assist farmers and growers in the move away from CAP support systems towards a greater emphasis on responding to the demands of the marketplace.“
