Germany. Farmers Demand Liberal Dairy Policy to Spur Competition

26.07.2013

If competition and entrepreneurship are to be promoted, dairy policy must take more liberal forms, the German Farmers Association (DBV) has told senior EU politicians.

This is the mantra of a letter addressed to national and pan-European bureaucrats in charge of dairy policy.

The DBV has said that unilateral, anti-competitive regulations will burden farmers and add more costs to the executive.

They also warned against quota impositions and rules around manure storage.

Instead, German farmers expect a policy to encourage young businesses, drive growth and strengthen product orientation to the market.
