Farming Minister Jim Paice said: “The Milk Roadmap is a world-leading example of an industry-led approach to reducing emissions.

“By extending the roadmap to other dairy products and the wider processing sector, the industry is coming together to set clear goals and take responsibility for reducing the emissions of the whole of the dairy supply chain.”

Currently the Milk Roadmap, which involves the entire supply chain, details environmental targets for liquid milk, which accounts for just over half of the milk produced in the UK.

“By extending the roadmap in this way, we are demonstrating our serious commitment to reducing the environmental impact of the dairy industry,” says Tim Bennett, chairman of the Milk Roadmap.

“This will ensure that we maintain a competitive and sustainable dairy industry, and reinforce our position as world-leaders in tackling the environmental impact of dairy farming.”
