HONITON: MP’s backing for dairies
Tuesday, 06 May 2014
Honiton MP Neil Parish has backed a new initiative to support the dairy industry. The ‘Dairy Makes a Difference’ campaign, launched by Dairy UK, will highlight the benefits of dairy products, as well as the industry’s contributions to the economy, the environment and public health. Mr Parish hosted the initiative launch event at the House of Commons on Tuesday (April 29th) and MPs are being asked to sign up to the campaign online. Mr Parish said: “As a former dairy farmer myself I know the challenges and hardships that many producers go through. But I am also optimistic about the industry’s future and the role it will play in bringing economic growth to the country. “However, our dairy industry’s importance does not end with the economy. Dairy makes a huge difference to our environment by managing the landscape and protecting biodiversity, particularly in our uplands. “Dairy products also have well-known nutritional benefits that will help keep the UK fit and healthy.”
