The new partnership brings together Lacteoscoop, Aprolact and Southern Cooperatives in a move that concentrates over 1 million tonnes of of the Spanish quota. 

Designed to establish a common trading platform for dairy farmers and preserve the sector, the three associations bring together farmers from the autonomous authorities of Castile and Leon, Catalonia, Galicia, Andalusia, Extremadura and Catilla-La Mancha. 

Bargaining power and production flexibility are hoped to develop from the amalgamation as the scheme targets optimal production planing of quality and quantity. 

A spokesperson said: "This will impact further on better management of prodcution costs and to implement common strategies". 

The Association is expected to become fully operational by April.
