    Landworkers’ Alliance

    We are a union of farmers, growers, foresters and land-based workers with a mission to improve the livelihoods of our members and create a better food and land-use system for everyone.

    We work for a future where producers can work with dignity to earn a decent living and everyone can access local, healthy and affordable food, fuel and fibre – a food and land-use system based on agroecology and food sovereignty that furthers social and environmental justice.

    Two New Food and Farming Consultations for Scotland

    What’s the issue?

    The Scottish Government is consulting on a new Agriculture Bill for Scotland – to be expected by 2023. The expectations for the new law are mixed. On the one hand side, the consultation aims to gather views on a successor for the EU Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) “that will guide farming, food production and land use for many years to come”. On the other hand, the SNP has committed to staying in tune with the CAP.
    At the same time as the agricultural subsidy consultation, the Scottish Government has also launched a consultation for a new ‘Local Food Strategy’, which would aim to make high quality food accessible to all and promote the benefits of local food.

    What are we doing?

    After the launch of our Manifesto for Change, the Landworkers’ Alliance has been lobbying the Scottish Government and Parliament for agriculture and food policies that put climate, biodiversity and equity and justice at their core.

    We are now responding to the two consultations.
