We uphold strict policies about the treatment of the animals in our supply chain.
We’re committed to supporting British farmers - 100% of our fresh meat is British. By supporting British farming, we can boost the economies of communities across the UK and ensure the highest standards of animal welfare.
Our Farming Groups
Fresh meat, poultry, fish, eggs and milk, everything we sell is sourced from suppliers who are passionate about what they produce and how they produce it. Everyone we work with has been chosen because they share our belief in honesty, fairness and trust, and are able to work to our strict standards in welfare and quality. In return, our Farming Groups provide networks that help farmers share knowledge and invest in their farms.
Everything we do is based on five Pillars that benefit everyone and guarantee the food you buy is ethical, sustainable and of exceptional quality. Discover how we’re working to improve the lives of everyone throughout our supply chain, from the communities to the people who work in our stores.
Training young farmers
Our Co-op Farming Pioneers programme takes groups of young farmers, aged between 21 and 35 through a free 30 month training programme. The aim is to help develop their business and personal skills to better equip them for the future of farming.
