RABDF is celebrating after receiving a £2,500 gift from The Patron’s Fund, the charitable fund set up to acknowledge the work of the charitable organisations for which Her Majesty, The Queen acts as a Patron, on the occasion of her 90th birthday.
The Royal Association of British Dairy Farmers carried out an independent survey* in 2016 which concluded that EU-labour was making a significant contribution to dairy farms and that farmers are clearly concerned that Brexit will have a major impact on their future sourcing of skilled EU-labour.
The Royal Association of British Dairy Farmers has appointed Matt Knight as managing director with responsibility for commercial operations. Tim Brigstocke continues as the Association’s policy director.
RABDF has welcomed government’s announcement to review the Groceries Code Adjudicator’s remit and extend it to cover indirect suppliers, including dairy farmers themselves and thereby help end unfair trading practices.
