Members of the dairy coalition say they will continue to apply pressure on retailers over milk pricing.
Speaking after a meeting between farmers' unions, Farmers For Action said despite some success, they will continue to campaign against those who pay less for milk than the amount it costs to produce.
NFU President Peter Kendall said despite there being some successes so far the battle for a fair milk price was far from over with next steps including:
- Putting the meat on the bones for the heads of terms agreed on thecontractual code of best practice between farmers and processors
- Seeing pressure mount on those retailers and processors that stillaren't paying farmers a price that reflects the costs of productionfor their milk
- And checking that the monies promised by the supply chain are - andcontinue to be - making their way back to farmers
