The Co-op: Dedicated to British Farming

The Co-op: Dedicated to British Farming

Our brilliant sponsors The Co-Op are proud to be dedicated to the present and future of British Farming. Take a look at this great video explaining their passion for British Farming.

The Co-op has also become the first retailer to stock 100% British meat.

After investing millions of pounds into UK farming the Co-op is now the only retailer to stock 100% own-brand fresh British beef, chicken, pork, lamb, bacon and turkey. Only using British meat in all its chilled ready meals, pies and sandwiches.


The Co-op’s extended pledges include:

  • Invest a minimum of £1.5bn between 2015-18 to source ‘own brand’ British meat, produce and dairy products from the UK
  • It will provide only 100% fresh British bacon, lamb, beef, chicken, ham, pork, sausages, and turkey
  • Only use British meat in all chilled ready meals, pies and sandwiches (except when using a continental meat eg chorizo)
  • Commit to openness and transparency by highlighting sourcing in our sustainability report and to producing a detailed report on our progress each year
  • Market British products honestly, clearly identifying British products on packaging and in store
  • Develop relationships with our produce grower base and provide greater availability of seasonal produce.
  • The Co-operative will extend its Farming Groups
  • It will offer only 100% British milk
The Co-op are proud to be the sponsors of Love British Food for 2017. Read more about this partnership in an article from the May/June 2017 Issue of the Co-op food magazine.
