Sainsbury's confirms long-term milk processor contracts

Sainsbury’s has confirmed its milk processor contracts for a further three years to 2017, as it looks to strengthen its UK milk supply chain and works towards doubling the amount of British food it sells by 2020.

The move builds on the work undertaken over the last six years by the Sainsbury’s Dairy Development Group which was set up in 2006 to help dairy farmers to improve efficiency and animal health and welfare, and reduce their impact on the environment. 

Justin King, Sainsbury's chief executive said: "This is great news for our farmers and processors and is testimony to the incredibly close relationships we've built over the past six years through our industry-leading Dairy Development Group. We've invested £40 million and seen significant advances in animal welfare and environmental standards, in turn saving our dairy farmers over £10 million.

"Our vision is to build strong relationships throughout our supply chain, ensuring a fair price for our farmers, good relationships with our processors and an assurance to our customers who want retailers to do the right thing on their behalf."
