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 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
