EDA Letter to EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker on #SingleMarket

This morning and ahead of tomorrow’s EU Council, Michel Nalet – chair of the European Dairy Association (EDA) addressed a letter to EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker regarding recent barriers to Single Market.

In our letter, EDA chair Michel Nalet reminds that the EU Single Market is essential for the European Dairy Industry. Today, in a time where we should also celebrate the 25th anniversary of the completion of our EU Single Market, this is no longer functioning the way it should for milk and dairy, and for food in general. The EU Single Market provides all EU dairy processors with a strong home market of still 500 mio citizens in which to operate. Besides the Brexit decision, the biggest overthrow of the European project, we have seen huge failures in the Single Market over the past two years with origin and nutrition labelling or Intra-trade Certificates. The full EDA letter to EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker is also available online.
