Expert analysis from a specialist in the field
Written by James Wilson, a leading analyst in the Food & Drink sector, his extensive knowledge delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.
Provenance remains an important factor when buying milk. Irish consumers are also willing to spend 20p/20c extra for 2 litres of milk to ensure that farmers are paid a fair price. Highlighting links to local suppliers and how much of the purchase price of milk goes directly to dairy farmers will help milk brands and supermarkets to demonstrate that they are supporting local milk producers.
