Farmers union puts pressure on dairy processors

The UK’s National Farmers Union (NFU) has upped the stakes in its continuing push to get dairy processors signed up to its ‘Dairy Industry Code of Best Practice for Contractual Relations’ which is designed to ensure a fair deal for farmers.

NFU has taken out an advert in The Grocer magazine, announcing who has signed up to the code.

It identifies Arla Food UK; Cotteswold Dairy; Cricketer Farms; Dairy Crest; First Milk; Lactalis, McLelland ‘The Fresh Milk Company’; J & E Dickinson, Longley Farm; Lye Cross Farm; Muller-Wiseman; and Parkham Farms.

The advert encourages farmers to “insist your dairy processor supplier offers farmers a fair milk contract. One that complies with the Code.”

The advert also encourages readers to visit the NFU’s web site, where it lists those companies who have not signed up the code.

Those companies include Barbers Cheese; Beltons Cheese; Freshways; Glanbia Cheese; Meadow Foods; Medina Dairy; Nom Dairy; Paynes Dairies; Wensleydale Creamery; Wyke Farms; and Yeo Valley Organic.

In several cases, the NFU notes that it is engaged in discussions with those companies who have not yet signed up. A number have expressed support in principle, but are said to be concerned about the detail of the code.
