The EU Sustainable Dairy Programme is a three year European funded multi–country programme from the European Milk Forum (EMF), which includes the Dairy Council for Northern Ireland. It aims to disseminate facts and solutions on how to create a sustainable dairy sector in Europe.
Other participating EMF countries are Belgium, France, Denmark, Netherlands and Ireland.
As part of the programme, the Dairy Council for Northern Ireland holds Symposia bringing dairy sector leaders from across Europe and Northern Ireland together to discuss the future sustainability of the dairy sector.
Fact books are also produced which detail the important achievements and positive progress made by the NI dairy sector in meeting the evolving environmental challenges.
