Spread­ing the word on dairy ex­pan­sion

Irish Independent - Farming - - NEWS -

THE un­prece­dented ex­pan­sion in the Ir­ish dairy in­dus­try in re­cent years and its im­pli­ca­tions for the wider farm sec­tor is the fo­cus for the third an­nual But­ter Mu­seum Lec­ture which takes place in Uni­ver­sity Col­lege Cork (UCC) this Thurs­day, at 8pm.

The lec­ture, en­ti­tled ‘Ire­land’s Dairy Sec­tor, Lead­ing Growth in Food and Drink’, will be de­liv­ered by for­mer Bord Bia chief ex­ec­u­tive Ai­dan Cot­ter. Mr Cot­ter will out­line the op­por­tu­ni­ties for dairy sales by the re­lent­less growth in the global mid­dle classes.

He will also deal with on­go­ing geo-po­lit­i­cal and mar­ket chal­lenges, and will ex­am­ine the pos­si­ble im­pact of con­tin­ued dairy growth for Ir­ish farm­ing gen­er­ally in the face of Brexit. The lec­ture will be held at the uni­ver­sity’s Ge­og­ra­phy lec­ture the­atre.
