Co-op store won’t kill badgers.

 

In response to formal communication from CBAG a meeting was held with

The Co-op who have now clarified their position:

 

 

1)       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 http://www.co-operative.coop/farms/habitatheroes/ There is no

expectation that badger culls will take place on land managed by the

Co-operative and nor would they be supported.

 

2)       We can also confirm that none of the Co-operative Dairy Group

farmers who provide us with a dedicated supply of own-brand milk are

located in the proposed cull zones.

 

3)       We will explain this position more clearly in all future

correspondence.
