The WFO aims to bring together all the national producers and farm cooperative organisations with the objective of developing policies which favour and support farmers’ causes in developed and developing countries.

“The WFO is a growing voice on the international stage, so it’s important in this context that New Zealand’s views continue to be heard,” says William.

As vice president, William will play a pivotal role in advocating on behalf of farmers and representing their interests in international policy forums.
