London, 19th April 2017: Commenting on the announcement that the Prime Minister will hold a snap general election on 8th June, Dr Judith Bryans, chief executive of Dairy UK, said:

“As politicians have started to gear up for another general election, Dairy UK is calling on politicians across the spectrum to stand up for dairy – an industry which is vital to Britain’s economy, environment as well as the nation’s diet.

“The UK dairy industry has tremendous potential on the domestic and international stage and it is in the interests of consumers and the many thousands of people who work in the industry that we operate and produce nutritious foods in the best possible business climate.

“With Brexit negotiations ahead, there are challenges and opportunities and we hope that the UK Government and the devolved administrations remain firmly committed to vigorously supporting one of the nation’s great industries.”
