DISGRUNTLED MILK SUPPLIERS TO SEEK DAIRYGOLD EGM
A group of disgruntled Dairygold milk producers say they are being left with no alternative but to call an extraordinary general meeting in an effort to get the proposed milk supply agreement shelved.
A spokesperson for the group said this week they are worried that the present agreement is based on a predicted 63.5% increase in milk which resulted from, what they term to be ‘a badly conducted and therefore inaccurate survey whereas two previous surveys showed an estimated 30% increase’.
The group, comprising members from mid Cork, Mitchelstown, Limerick, East Cork, Tipperary and Dunmanway, charge Dairygold with failing to negotiate with them ‘in any meaningful way.’
