New Zealand: substantial access to EU’s market causes worries

After the EU and New Zealand reached a political agreement on a comprehensive trade agreement with New Zealand that includes a substantial access to the EU’s market on dairy, sheep meat and beef, Copa and Cogeca the umbrella organisations of European farmers and European cooperatives, are worried about the effects. New Zealand exporters already have market access for 75000 tonnes of butter and 11000 tonnes of cheese, this additional access to the EU’s added value protein market and sensitive products (butter 15000 tonnes, cheese 25000 tonnes, milk powder 15000 tonnes) will substantially increase market pressure and will provide a strong bargaining hold on import management to one dairy company according to Copa and Cogeca.
