The Dairy APPG will hear from a range of industry speakers later this month, including representatives from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), and Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB), who will outline current export data and look at what future export strategy could look like post-Brexit.
Mann said, “I’m delighted to launch this inquiry on behalf of the Dairy APPG and understand the framework within which British dairy exports can thrive. These are exciting times but I want to know what practical and realistic help the Government can provide to help the industry post-Brexit.”
In the coming year the Dairy APPG will also look at sustainability and the dairy sector, as well as look at innovations in milk packaging.
Written contributions to the inquiry can be sent to the APPG secretariat.
Mann was elected new chair of the Dairy APPG in February. Four vice-chairs were also elected: Steve Double MP, Angela Smith MP, Chris Davies MP and David Simpson MP.
