    How Irish dairy can cope in a volatile market

    14 November 2017
    The European dairy industry continues to be facing turbulent times despite the abolition of milk quotas in April 2015. The uncertainty concerning Brexit is only fanning the flames of confusion among the UK’s biggest dairy trading partners, most notably the Republic of Ireland. 
    Ornua exports 60 percent of Irish Dairy products and the €1.75bn dairy cooperative has core markets in the US, UK & Germany and is strongly developing in Africa, China, the Middle East and Saudi Arabia. 
    FoodIngredientsFirst spoke to Ornua’s CEO of Ingredients Europe, Bernard Condon. He began by asking Bernard about the current outlook for the dairy market, before discussing why butter prices have been taking such an upwardly march recently and the cooperative’s contingency plans for Brexit.
