LATEST NEWS


EU-Vietnam trade agreement - great news for dairy trade

The deal that became applicable on 1 August 2020 will gradually lift all duties on EU dairy products, in 5 years at the latest, in addition to other measures facilitating trade. This will further enhance Vietnam's position as a key partner and market for the EU dairy sector.
 

Updated Eucolait position on the future relationship between the EU and the UK
 
 
Eucolait is extremely concerned about the declaration by the UK that it will not consider an extension of the transitional period. Progress in the negotiations between the EU and the UK has been slow and the positions of each side appear inconsolable. With the extension of the transitional period ruled out, there are only four months left to get from the current impasse to an agreement to avoid a hard Brexit. This immense task is further complicated by the ongoing pandemic and its economic fallout. Read more
 

Farm to Fork Strategy -  a dairy trade perspective
 

Eucolait welcomes the publication of the Farm to Fork Strategy. As a responsible stakeholder in the dairy supply chain, we salute the Commission's ambitious goal to make the European food system a global standard for sustainability and we are confident that trade can play a vital role in driving this goal.

The key role of trade as part of the strategy requires further emphasis. The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic is a timely reminder of the need for a resilient food system. It has also illustrated to us the value of our large single market, which is far more resilient to external shocks than any national market within Europe would be. Looking forward, this resilience can be further enhanced through diversification of supply chains, sourcing and export markets. Conversely, a policy of self-sufficiency and closed borders is doomed to fail. Read more



Covid-19 - private storage aid welcome
 
The corona virus and the measures taken to contain it have led to an unprecedented  demand shock as food service sales have all but disappeared. The global spread of the pandemic means that European exports are also heavily affected. We therefore warmly welcome the decision of the Commission to activate private storage aid for SMP, butter and cheese, providing some temporary support to the dairy market.
