Dairy Leaders Dissatisfied with Meetings, Might Protest Again
Recently, protests over milk price cuts stopped in the UK because some companies were willing to negotiate. However, dairy farmers were allegedly not satisfied with the outcome of their meetings with company leaders, claiming they were "difficult to approach" and "not able to discuss anything of substance". Dairy leaders are considering picking up where they left off—with protests.
Dairy leaders are threatening further protests against Farmfoods over the milk price cuts after a "disappointing" round of talks with company leaders.
David Handley, chairman of Farmers for Action, held talks with Eric Heard, managing director of Farmfoods, in Birmingham on Monday (13 August) in a bid to secure a fairer milk price that reflects farmers' cost of production.
