”With 80% of UK dairy exports currently going to EU countries, any disruption to current agreements would have an extensive and costly impact on our industry.
We support the Government’s commitment to put in place a strong, swift and effective transitional process and urge them to avoid any kind of interruption to current trade agreements with EU countries or the creation of counterproductive tariff or non-tariff barriers.
What we absolutely cannot see is a fall back to WTO default terms as the tariffs within WTO arrangements would have disastrous consequences for dairy trade”, Dr Judith Bryans, Chief Executive of Dairy UK says.
Judith Bryans, CEO of Dairy UK, has been elected as new President of the International Dairy Federation.
New IDF President Judith Bryans is the first female president in its history. She emphasizes IDF’s role as being one strong global voice that can create consensus within the dairy sector. With her election, former IDF President Jeremy Hill passed on the baton and also emphasized the importance of an overarching dairy federation.
Judith Bryans has a PhD in Nutrition and quickly became Chief Executive of the Dairy Council UK. Later Judith Bryans took over as chief executive of Dairy UK, which is a trade association representing processers and farmers in the UK.
