Ifa Members Urged To Support Local Ndc Marked Milk

IFA National Liquid Milk Committee Chairman Teddy Cashman has urged IFA
members and their families to support their local dairies when purchasing
milk, and to choose NDC-marked milk at all times.

“I am three quarters of the way through a series of meetings with all the
main retailers, and I am exhorting them all to source milk from local
dairies registered with the NDC. It is fair to say that most retailers
recognise the importance of supporting the local economy.”

He said, “However, as farmers and farm families, we need to put our money
where our mouth is, and make sure that when we buy milk in our local
supermarket, we support our local dairies by purchasing locally produced
and processed milk bearing the NDC mark. And if we don’t see NDC marked
milk in the supermarket, we should ask the shop manager to give us the
choice of purchasing it.”

“While some retailers are better than others at supporting locally produced
and processed liquid milk, all except the new wave of discounters and some
small outlets offer locally produced, NDC marked milk, so buying local milk
is easy,” he said.

“In the Liquid Milk Committee, our motto has long been “local milk for
local people”. I urge all IFA members and their families to make a
conscious choice to support their local dairies in their weekly shop,” he
