European Milk Board Calls for 2% Milk Production Cuts

13:03PM Sep 19, 2014

The European Milk Board (EMP) is calling for voluntary milk production cuts of 2% to ease the situation on dairy market after the Russian boycott of European Union dairy products, reports Wilfried Wesselink, Dairy Today’s European correspondent.

The planned private storage aid for butter, skimmed milk powder and certain cheeses and the extension of the period for public intervention do not provide a sufficient solution, says the EMB.

If the voluntary production cuts don’t materialize or are insufficient after three months, other measures would need to follow. In that case, the quotas now still in force should be reduced for all producers.
