Great Britain: fair treatment across dairy sector

In the United Kingdom the government and related administrations have announced regulations to ensure fair treatment across the UK’s dairy sector. This because imbalances of power within the dairy supply chain were believed to be causing instability for dairy farmers, such as where milk buyers have the ability to set and modify the terms of a contract at short notice. The new regulations will require certain standards for contracts between those producing and buying milk for processing. The government will develop a new statutory Code of Conduct for the sector, will seek to provide a guiding framework, establishing minimum standards but also providing businesses with the flexibility to adapt contracts to their individual circumstances.
