GLANBIA HOLDING MILK PRICES THROUGH EARLY PEAK SETS THE TONE FOR ALL OTHER CO-OPS – O’LEARYDairy
IFA National Dairy Committee Chairman Sean O’Leary has said the move by Glanbia to ensure that suppliers will receive the same price for their milk through the early peak (March to May inclusive) was a valuable commitment in the immediate aftermath of the end of quotas.
He called on all co-ops to ensure that their suppliers could benefit from the same level of stability through this challenging period.
“It is important to recognise that all dairy farmers need the certainty of stable milk incomes over the next couple of months, as they enter the post quota era,” he said.
Mr O’Leary urged all co-ops to take note of the GII move, and to ensure that they too provide stability for their suppliers through peak.
