IFA REACTION TO GLANBIA ANNOUNCEMENTDairy
IFA President John Bryan today (Tues) urged Glanbia board members to be ambitious in their final discussions and ensure that dairy farmers are put firmly back in control of their industry.
He said, “Any final decisions must facilitate greater transparency, collaboration and integration of future processing facilities within the region.”
Glanbia had led down milk prices this year, and John Bryan challenged the Board to ensure there were no further cuts in advance of the end-of-August deadline to finalise the deal between the co-op and the plc.
