The publication of the Food Vision Dairy report has been welcomed by Ibec group Dairy Industry Ireland, which says it will allow Irish dairy to further increase and enhance its competitive advantage in global markets.
DII believes the dairy industry can do this with meaningful and advanced climate action while sustaining the economic opportunity for Ireland, and in rural Ireland particularly.
The group particularly welcomed the strong stakeholder engagement in shaping the recommendations of the report, designed to address the significant agriculture climate change target of 25% reduction by 2030 agreed by the government over the summer.
“This is the beginning of a new phase of delivery and implementation to transform the Irish dairy sector in line with the vision and philosophy of Food Vision 2030,” said director of Dairy Industry Ireland, Conor Mulvihill. “We will be consulting with member processors with a view to bringing forward individual strategies in line with the 19 recommendations of the report.”
“The industry and its family farm suppliers have been driving programmes for some time. It has further ambitious programmes set out for the next decade and wishes to be integral to Ireland’s climate and economic journey,” said Mulvihill. “To achieve this, clear funding and policy mechanisms to help farmers meet these targets must be set out urgently by government through Carbon Sink farming, National funding and EU schemes through the Green Deal & CAP.
