Quality assurance scheme for the supply of milk for baby food formula
Kerry P.L.C. have been awarded a contract by a Chinese company to supply baby food formula to the Chinese market. This will entail a quality assurance scheme which will have to be paid for by the farmers supplying the milk. I met a farmer in Dingle, Co. Kerry who is not happy at farmers having to pay fees. However, the added value to milk processed should result in an increased price for milk at the farm gate.
