Dairy and the environment
Article Type: Food facts From: Nutrition & Food Science, Volume 41, Issue 4
Dairy UK has invited experts from the USA, Sweden and France to join with NGOs and UK industry representatives to take a hard look at whether dairy is matching consumer expectations. French environmental expert Sophie Bertrand said: Society has very high and contradictory expectations of the dairy industry. It wants us to produce more, better quality, safer dairy products, but at the same time it wants us to provide environmental services and reduce our impact on the environment. This is our challenge. We must also recognise that even if our environmental performance is good, as it is, we need to tell people what we are doing […] and there is always room to do that little bit better!
