Dale Farm shares future focus at 2022 AGM
Dale Farm held its Annual General Meeting on 20th October at the Glenavon Hotel, Cookstown.
Leaders from within the dairy cooperative updated farmer members on developments from financial year 2021/22 and outlined its core areas of focus for the year ahead. Members were given the opportunity to share their experiences and discuss challenges facing the dairy industry.
Amongst a broad range of content, discussions centred around developments in the Dale Farm milk pool and the cooperative’s ongoing commitment to paying farmers a competitive milk price. The importance of managing inflation across operations in areas such as energy, packaging ingredients and labour was outlined, as well as an in-depth look into the company’s strategy going forward and its approach to encouraging sustainability, from farm to fridge.
“Our AGM provides an excellent platform to explore shared challenges and discuss how we can best support today and tomorrow's farmers," said Nick Whelan, Group Chief Executive, Dale Farm.
"The last year has been evidence that our strategy is working, but we need to remain focused and agile, given the market headwinds we all face.” Nick added.
