Organic Dairy Proves Resilient to Downturn

05 February 2009

UK - The organic dairy market remains resilient in the economic downturn amidst ongoing diversification drives, but more most be done to improve profitability in supply, says the new vice-chairman of a leading British cooperative.

With the appointment of Sam Taylor to the position of vice-chairman of organic cooperative OMSCo, the group claims that while it must avoid complacency at all costs, potential fears over consumers trading down from organic milk are not warranted.

In turning to future development within organic dairy though, Taylor told DairyReporter.com that the economic downturn had meant that ensuring milk price stability and supporting market growth were now increasingly important objectives.
