At the Royal Welsh Show last week, the Red Tractor team had the opportunity to engage with farmers, stakeholders, retailers, and industry professionals. Among the attendees, Tim Lock, Chair of the Red Tractor Dairy Sector Board, received a pleasant surprise when he was presented with a prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award from Marks & Spencer. 

Tim’s remarkable journey in the industry included his significant contribution as the former chair of the M&S National Milk pool. The award recognises his significant standing and influence on the sector and his strong leadership qualities. Throughout his tenure, M&S explained that Tim always displayed a fair and consistent negotiating approach, effectively representing farmers and as such he instilled a sense of belonging and camaraderie among the dairy farmers supplying them.  

The award was presented by Steve Mclean, Head of Agriculture & Fisheries at M&S, who commended Tim for his exceptional achievements and praised him for a “job well done”!
