Lamb Initiative

About the Scheme

The Wales YFC Lamb Initiative is a partnership between Dunbia (Llanybydder), Sainsbury’s and Wales YFC. The partnership provides the opportunity for Wales YFC members to supply their Welsh lamb to Welsh Sainsbury’s stores at a premium price all year round.

The aim of the scheme is to work with a forward thinking processor and retailer to attract Wales YFC members who produce lamb to become suppliers and to keep Young Farmers at the forefront of the industry. Ultimately the initiative is about creating a sustainable supply chain to help support the future of rural Wales.

Why should you get involved?
The scheme creates an income stream for the movement, as Sainsbury’s directly contribute 40p per lamb sold (on top of the price that you receive) to Wales YFC. 10p of that goes directly to your County Federation.
