Dairy’s Brexit ‘to do’ agenda
Defra Minister, George Eustice, will outline the UK Government’s milk sector “to do” list for post-Brexit Britain when he addresses the 2019 Semex Dairy Conference in Glasgow in January.
Heading the lineup of speakers at the event, on January 13-15, he will give his overview of the sector’s strengths and weaknesses as producers head into what the conference organisers describe as a “pivotal year of change” for the UK.
Further post-Brexit implications will be tackled by NFU president Minette Batters and Jukka Likitalo of the European Association of Dairy Trade, with international trade presentations by US speaker Sue McCloskey, who founded the Fairlife milk brand, and Charlie Perotti, Fonterra’s production director in China.
Delegates will also get the chance to hear Ash Amirahmadi, of Arla Foods UK; Chris Walkland, market analyst; Tom Levitt, Nuffield Scholar; Dr Giovanni Gnemmi of Bovinevet; dairy farmer Joe Wannop; Dr Michael Louhis, Semex Alliance; Will Evans, digital innovator, and Jeremy Higgins, US dairy herd manager.
