Faced with low margins and extreme volatility on the agricultural commodity markets, Cogeca President, Christian Pees, underlined the essential role agri-cooperative play in supporting farmers in these volatile markets and in enabling them to secure higher prices for their milk.

Speaking at a Cogeca Presidency Business Forum for the Dairy Sector today Mr Pees said there is strong demand on the world market for milk and cooperatives are crucial in helping farmers to take advantage of these opportunities.

Copa Cogeca believe that farmers, who are being confronted with more and more challenges, like rising production costs, market volatility, costly regulations and obligations and growing world food demand, are offered vital help by cooperatives.
