Commenting on the announcement, ICMSA President, John Comer, said that the Glanbia organisations will have to convince farmers that there will be a financial benefit to them as a result of this revised structure. He also stressed that farmers’ attention will focus primarily on whether they are likely to receive a stronger milk price and farm inputs at competitive rates arising out of this move.   “ ICMSA will consult with its members and officers in the Glanbia region and, depending on their reaction and what we view as being in the interests of farmer-suppliers, we will then take a position regarding the proposal.    

Ends      22 February 2017.
