Detail

This report documents a review of evidence concerning the impacts of liquid milk production, processing, retailing and consumption on the environment and to a lesser extent, society and the economy (the economics of the dairy industry are extensively covered by other work).

Its primary objective is to inform the “roadmap” being developed by the dairy industry and Defra to improve the sustainability performance of UK liquid milk.
