Fairness in the milk supply chain and Unfair Trading Practices (UTPs)

Today’s proposal by EU Commissioner Phil Hogan for a EU-wide framework on unfair trading practices in business-to-business relationships in the food supply chain reinforces the position of small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs).

In an ever more concentrated retail environment, all dairies face unfair trade practices today – it isn’t a question of small dairies, it touches all dairies across Europe that deserve the same level of protection”, stated EDA secretary general Alexander Anton.
