Proud of Dairy
James Neville,
Volac:
"We have a strong culture of dairy production and consumption in this country. Our Dairy Industry produces an excellent range of products which are appealing to consume and are a healthy and nutritious component of our diet. Importantly our industry has continued to evolve, responding to the needs of consumers and the countryside. The United Kingdom is a great place to produce dairy products and with increasing global demand for high quality products we have the opportunity to grow our exports globally."

And they have every reason to do so; they are part of a forward-thinking, progressive industry and are ultimately essential to the production of a wide range of great tasting and highly nutritious dairy products enjoyed by millions every single day."
