Dairy UK has elected Paul Vernon, Chief Executive of Glanbia Cheese, as its new chairman, to succeed Dr David Dobbin. Paul Vernon, who has worked with Glanbia for 22 years, says of his new role: “For me it is a huge privilege to be elected chairman of an organisation that puts itself at the forefront of representing the interests of one of the nation’s greatest industries. I am both appreciative and humbled by the support other leading figures across the supply chain have given me, in accepting this role.”

He continues: “I can make one firm commitment without any hesitation, and that is that Dairy UK will spare no effort in fighting for the interests of dairy. We have massive challenges ahead of us, particularly in relation to Brexit, so there has never been a more important time to remind government and decision-makers of the relevance and importance of dairy. Whilst Brexit might dominate the political landscape, we mustn’t forget there’s still work to do across a whole range of other key issues facing the industry, such as protecting and promoting the nutritional benefits of dairy foods.These are extraordinary times, but where there is challenge there is also opportunity. We must ensure our industry works to create an environment conducive to these new opportunities.”

Tomas Pietrangeli, MD of Arla Foods and Andrew McInnes, MD of Muller Milk & Ingredients, are the newly elected Vice-Chairs of Dairy UK.
