The Future Farmer Foundation programme supports budding farmers, aged 20 to 35, to build their business skills.
Twelve of the future farmers visited the food group’s Coupar Angus Scottish operation, where they were given a presentation from site general manager Russell Allan plus a tour of the entire process from intake to despatch.
The second initiative, dubbed Feet on Farm, entails 2 Sisters becoming the first supplier to host Tesco store managers, to develop their understanding of where quality chicken products come from.
The visits include a presentation, tour of the farm and an opportunity to see different types of birds including free-range and organic. The first visit is due to take place in June at a Lincolnshire farm.
