ABOUT SW CoRE
South West Chamber of Rural Enterprise (SW CoRE)was established in November 2001, after the disasters of Foot and Mouth disease, and became a not-for-profit company limited by guarantee in 2005. It aims to provide a ‘rural hub’ for the region, and a unique forum for South West businesses, organisations and statutory bodies with an interest in the land-based sector, rural issues and the rural economy to discuss policies that would improve rural business performance in the area.
SW CoRE's structure is unique to the South West region in that it has a coherent and apolitical voice for representatives of the sector while working to encourage profitable and sustainable land-based (and related) businesses in the region. This it does by bringing together members and observers at seminars and at three conferences each year, and by ensuring a wide range of membership interests on the Board.
