Independent dairy review underway, announces Deputy Minister
Deputy Minister Rebecca Evans has announced that Andy Richardson, a member of the Dairy Task Force for Wales, has agreed to undertake the independent review of the Welsh dairy sector.
Last month the Deputy Minister announced that the review would be carried out in response to the recent cuts in milk prices as well as to consider the effectiveness of the Plan for Milk and the Voluntary Code here in Wales.
Rebecca Evans yesterday spoke at the NFU Annual conference she said she was looking forward to working closely with Mr Richardson and the Dairy Task Force for Wales during the review process and expected to receive the completed report by the end of February 2015.
The Deputy Minister said:
“Mr Richardson has a wealth of experience in the dairy sector and has been involved in similar high profile initiatives at a UK level so I am pleased that he has agreed to undertake this important work.
“I expect the review to provide clear strategic direction for the dairy sector across the whole supply chain, offering a series of recommendations that government and the industry can put in place to deliver resilience, economic growth and the creation of additional jobs within the industry here in Wales.”
