UK: Dairy firms urged to cast nets more widely

UK dairy businesses should start to look further afield for new business and the cross-industry body Dairy UK is launching an initiative to help them.

UK dairy businesses should start to look further afield for new business and the cross-industry body Dairy UK is launching an initiative to help them.


Director general Jim Begg advised his members: “The outlook for world demand is positive, so we must ‘fish where the fish are’. “


Dairy UK is now encouraging closer links with Food From Britain, the UK’s food and drink export promotional body. On Wednesday (13 December) there will be a special programme of events in London for Dairy UK members, linked to the Food From Britain Export Awards and Network Forum.


“Exploiting new markets is essential to aid profits in partnership with farmers, particularly at times of market pressure as now,” Begg explained. “Trade liberalisation, CAP Reform, the WTO, globalisation, and the enlargement of the EU, are all having a major impact. These developments are changing the way that companies do business, creating new opportunities.”
