Similar to the Women In Dairy group, launched by the Royal Association of British Dairy Farmers (RABDF), Womens Farming Discussion Group will focus on the important role women play in all aspects of British agriculture.
“Today many of the leading farmers are women and we feel it is important to recognise and promote this,” explained Pearce Hughes, Asda’s agricultural manager.
He said: “We want to create a platform for like-minded business women to discuss topical industry issues in a male dominated industry.”
Millie Wastie, former National Federation of Young Farmers Clubs chairman has welcomed the move saying: “it is vital we show youngsters that farming can be a really rewarding career for women.”
WalMart is taking practical steps to help change the lives of countless women around the world by 2016.
