Industry body Dairy UK is to be launched at this year’s Dairy Event. Formed of farmers’ and processors’ groups, the organisation will act as a unifying voice for the milk supply chain.

Farming press reports indicate Sir Don Curry (pictured above) will be Dairy UK’s first chairman.

The Dairy Event, which runs on September 22 and 23, will also be the second outing for the MilkMade exhibition.

The event, sponsored by Asda and The Grocer’s sister magazine Food Manufacture, will showcase new ideas for adding value to milk.
