Dairy APPG calls for export support post-Brexit
The Dairy All-Party Parliamentary Group has launched a report with the findings of the latest inquiry on dairy exports, complete with recommendations for supporting the long term future of dairy exports.
The inquiry, chaired by North Cornwall MP Scott Mann, took evidence from a range of witnesses, both from industry, farmers and executive bodies to understand what support the dairy sector needed to continue its trade in exports post-Brexit.
The report details five key areas in which the sector faces challenges in the wake of Brexit; tariffs on trade, maintaining current standards, animal health certification, increasing our exporting potential and building relationships with new markets.
Commenting on the publication of the report, Dairy APPG chair Scott Mann MP said: “I’m delighted to be launching our dairy exports inquiry report, looking to the future of dairy exports for the UK.
“The report outlines the challenges the UK dairy industry faces exporting its products post-Brexit, but it is also clear that with the right support in place, our dairy exporters will be well placed to continue to export their much-loved to international consumers.
“The Dairy APPG hopes that these recommendations will help provide central government and relevant departments with guidance on supporting dairy exports and the sector long-term.”
