Tesco to expand dairy farming group

The supermarket said the number of dairy farms from across the UK it will have direct relationships with could increase by around a quarter. It will also offer mentoring and advice through the creation of a new platform for new and young farmers wishing to enter the dairy industry.

The Dairy Centre of Excellence will provide practical support for Tesco dairy farmers and opportunities to share knowledge and expertise with other farmers from across the country in order to improve animal welfare and encourage innovation.

Following discussions with famers, processors and industry experts, Tesco has just completed its first ever review of the TSDG in order to adapt to the changes that have taken place in the dairy industry since the TSDG’s inception in 2007.

Tesco commercial director for fresh food Matt Simister said: “Tesco has a long and proud history of supporting British dairy farmers and we recognise the many challenges they face. We’re also committed to helping customers by providing the best quality British produce every time they shop with us.

“So it’s crucial to us and our farmers we continue to evolve the most sustainable, progressive and leading dairy group in the UK.

“By maintaining our above the cost of production model and focusing on delivering quality, value, innovation and service for our customers, we are confident it can continue to be a standard bearer for the industry.”
