Farm Gate: Farmers, Copa Cogeca and the NFU

An investigation by Lighthouse Reports has targeted the powerful European farming lobby group, Copa-Cogeca, which they say “is losing legitimacy even as it stymies the EU’s green agenda and hoovers up public funds.”

In this programme we’ll explore issues raised by the Lighthouse Reports investigation – and think about the legitimacy and the policy role of the National Farmers’ Union, the largest farmers’ organisation in the United Kingdom.

ffinlo Costain is by Thin Lei Win, a co-author of the report – and by Jimmy Woodrow, the executive director of Pasture for Life in the UK.
