THE NETHERLANDS – Dutch dairy leaders have voiced concerns at protest action taken by French farmers in recent weeks.
They say transport disruptions “do not solve” a difficult market position and blockades are causing “disproportionate damage” to non-French suppliers of agricultural products.
Last week, a Dutch Dairy Association spokesperson said: “The French dairy farmers are just as dependent on the European market and export markets as the farmers in other European countries.
“A well-functioning EU market is in the interests of all stakeholders in the chain, also for the French farmers.”
