Target of a 50% increase in Irish milk production

Published 15 October 10

The Irish governement has recently published its vision for the Irish and Dairy sector where one of the key goals is to increase milk production by 50% by 2020. The report, called Food harvest 2020 and which can be downloaded by clicking here, sees in the abolition of EU milk quotas in 2015 a good opportunity for the Irish dairy sector. The additional 2.75 billion litres expected should help to boost Irish exports which could put pressure on some British processors.
