In the United Kingdom as in other countries the Covid-19 resulted for the dairy industry in the almost complete loss of the food service and hospitality market. This has led to some dairy farmers with no other option but to dispose of milk on farm, despite of shortages in a few supermarkets. Other farms are affected by reduced farmers milk prices. The private dairy Müller is asking all of its supplying farmers to co-operate in a milk volume reduction plan for a limited period of time to try and prevent the prospect of non-collection of milk off farms. Müller is requesting to reduce milk production by three percent immediately and until the end of May 2020.
