UK - An National Farmers Union delegation heads to Japan this week to explore the opportunities the British dairy industry can offer the international market and to share expertise and knowledge gained from the creation of the voluntary code.
NFU dairy board chairman Mansel Raymond and chief dairy adviser Rob Newbery will visit Japan to take part in the International Dairy Federation annual dairy conference in Yokohama.
Mr Raymond said: “The British dairy industry is looking for opportunities to grow, and the international market has huge potential for us. Our produce is world renowned, and we will be looking to push the message that we are ready to become major players on the world stage when we are out there.
“We are also keen to explore new technologies and tools that will be beneficial to the industry, as well as sharing our examples of best practice that will improve others. For example, we know that the dairy code of best practice for contractual relations is something that a lot of people are interested in, and we will be sharing our experiences of how we got to where we are in the UK and how other countries could implement something similar if they thought it was neccesary.”
