IFA To Discuss Producer Concerns With Kerry Group

05 August 2011

IRELAND - IFA President John Bryan will lead a delegation of Irish Farmers Association (IFA) dairy representatives from Kerry, Limerick and Clare at a meeting with the Chief Executive of Kerry Group, Stan McCarthy, in Dublin next Monday, to discuss milk prices.

John Bryan said: “Farmer suppliers are seeking clarification and commitments from Kerry Group that it will pay a leading milk price into the future."

"As the industry gears up for expansion in 2015, Kerry suppliers are entitled to demand as much clarification as possible, and better assurances from Kerry on paying a leading milk price.”

The IFA President said the IFA delegation would also be looking for assurances on how genuine concerns in relation to the future representation of dairy farmers within the Kerry Group structure can best be addressed.
