NFU appoints Campbell Tickell to complete Red Tractor review

Management consultancy Campbell Tickell has been appointed by the National Farmers’ Union (NFU) to complete its independent review of assurance body Red Tractor.

The review follows the halting of Red Tractor’s Greener Farms Commitment.

This comes as Red Tractor previously responded to industry feedback about the implementation of its Greener Farms Commitment (GFC) by halting further progress and agreeing to a review of Red Tractor governance.

The NFU said that the review will:

  • Establish Red Tractor’s decision-making procedures and its transparency
  • Examine who is consulted by Red Tractor in its development of standards, and look at the balance of this feedback
  • Look at how Red Tractor engages with stakeholders
  • Identify any obstacles which need addressing.

The NFU stated that the review team will speak to a “cross-section” of those involved across the Red Tractor process through interviews and survey work in order to determine how those Red Tractor processes currently work.

The findings of the review will be presented to NFU Council and the Red Tractor Ownership body in late January 2023, with the final report being made available in mid-February.
