The Farmers' Charter continues the Department of Agriculture’s commitment to the principles of Quality Customer Service set out in their Customer Charter and Action Plan. Progress under the Charter will be monitored by a review committee under an independent chairman.
The committee is comprised of representatives of farm organisations and Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine staff.
If you have an issue with one of the above schemes please contact head office.
