Dutch Condemn French Farmer Protests

06 August 2015

THE NETHERLANDS – Dutch dairy leaders have voiced concerns at protest action taken by French farmers in recent weeks.

They say transport disruptions “do not solve” a difficult market position and blockades are causing “disproportionate damage” to non-French suppliers of agricultural products.

Last week, a Dutch Dairy Association spokesperson said: “The French dairy farmers are just as dependent on the European market and export markets as the farmers in other European countries.

“A well-functioning EU market is in the interests of all stakeholders in the chain, also for the French farmers.”
