UK Marketing Demand and Organic Dairy Farming
In this 40 page paper the UK organic dairy sector is examined. The development of the sector may be seen as a response for both environmental and consumer concerns. This market was once one that was buoyant providing a premium for organic farmers. However, the supply has now exceeds the demand. The result is that farmers in this sector need to adapt and change in order to retain the market and develop it so that they can survive as organic farmers. The current situation is that of a crossroads, depending on how the market develops and the way the dairy farmers influence that development will determine the future of the organic dairy farming and its’ produce. This paper argues that the farmers need to change the culture of producing and marketing organic dairy produce, looking at ways of developing the value chain, to add value and increase the demand for the product overall as well as reducing the level that is satisfied by the import market. Beginning with consideration of the dairy market and organic dairy farming in the UK, the history of the development of milk marketing is outlined to show how the current culture of lack of marketing or value adding exercises has developed. The paper then looks at the different influences that may impact on this, how value may be added and the different actions that both farmers and retail can and are taking to stimulate demand for organic products and a whole and also for that demand to be satisfied locally. The bibliography cites 29 sources.
