UK milk row rumbles on
Troubles in the UK dairy industry continue as farmers warn of action if processors push through recently announced price cuts.
Asda's move to increase the price it pays to suppliers in its dedicated milk supply pool from has been branded an insult to dairy farmers.
UK retailer Asda will increase the premium it pays the farmers who supply its liquid milk through the Arla Foods Milk Partnership.
UK dairy farmers are preparing to take action that would disrupt the country's milk supply if cuts to the farm-gate milk price are not rescinded.
Dairy farming organisations are working on long-term plans to address an imbalance of power in the supply chain, the National Farmers Union has told just-food.
Protests have erupted outside Asda and Morrisons stores across the UK as dairy farmers attempt to highlight their claim the price they are paid for milk is below the cost of production.
The Scottish government has unveiled a five-point action plan aimed at tackling pricing issues in the dairy industry.
UK Prime Minister David Cameron has announced a GBP5m (US$7.7m) funding programme aimed at helping improve dairy farmers' competitiveness.
