Dairy Farmers of Canada is disappointed with the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) Dispute Settlement Panel ruling, David Wiens, president of Dairy Farmers of Canada (DFC), said in a statement.

The ruling found that two of the six elements challenged by New Zealand were inconsistent with the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership. 

"Nonetheless, the panel found that four of New Zealand's claims were unfounded," Wiens said.

"We now call on the federal government to do a thorough review of the measures the government of New Zealand has put in place to support its dairy sector to ensure that they are consistent with its international trade obligations," he added.
