Jim Begg to Retire from UK Dairy Industry

Jim Begg, Director General of Dairy UK, has announced he is to retire from the industry this year.  Begg has been at the head of the organisation since its inception in 2004. Prior to that he led both The Dairy Industry Association and The Dairy Industry Federation. He was also President of the International Dairy Federation between 2004 and 2008.

He says: “I have spent all my working life in the dairy industry and have witnessed a great many changes. I believe passionately in the strengths of the UK dairy industry and there is no doubt in my mind that it can enjoy a vibrant and successful future. I feel that this year is the right time for me to hand over the baton at Dairy UK to someone who will enjoy the job and relish the challenges it brings, as I have done over the years.”

DairyUK Chairman Billy Keane comments: “This really is the end of a great era. Jim has been in the industry for 43 years and for the last 25 years he has been right at the heart of the change and dynamism that the sector has experienced. He has provided real leadership and has been the public face and a stabilising force through many difficult periods of turbulence. His experience will be sadly missed, particularly his extensive knowledge of the international dairy developments.”
