Join us in the fight to keep our Rare and Native breeds alive

"We have been working closely with RBST for the last couple of years now and after a lot of hard work, networking and research we are finally able to source some of the finest rare and native breeds the UK has to offer"

Dan Anderson, Chef Director at Anderson’s Bar and Grill

Partnerships of all types are an essential way in which RBST can achieve its all-important goal of ensuring that the genetic diversity represented by our native breeds is safeguarded for the future.

Since its foundation, RBST has enjoyed the support of commercial partners, whose financial contribution has played an important part in ensuring that its work continues. In recognising the importance of that contribution, RBST has reviewed its corporate offers, looking to make them work better for both partners and RBST.

The new packages will eventually replace all existing RBST licensing and corporate packages.

These will be tailored to the individual needs of the sponsor and will also include the benefits of an annual Corporate Support package.

RBST will be contacting all license holders and corporate supporters to discuss the new arrangements, but any existing agreements will continue until 31 December 2020.
