OUR VIEWS ON AGRICULTURAL, FOOD AND TRADE POLICY ISSUES
 
As the organisation representing dairy trade, it goes without saying that our contributions to policy debates reflect our market-orientated philosophy. We believe in a competitive European dairy sector with a leading position on the global market. The core of the Eucolait message is to 'keep the milk moving', whether it be between EU Member States or between the EU and its third country trading partners. Our mission is to facilitate the commercial activities of our members by striving for an environment in which trade can flourish, without undue barriers but in full compliance with applicable rules and regulations.

Eucolait fully supports the market-orientation of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), while acknowledging that maintaining a safety net consisting of public intervention and private storage aid is in the interest of the whole dairy sector. This market orientation needs to be accompanied by comprehensive, reliable and timely market information to provide operators in the dairy supply chain with the right signals.

Food law is key for ensuring that all products placed on the market are safe and adequately labelled. Eucolait supports smart, science-based regulation that provides a solid framework for the industry to operate in. We are opposed to purely protectionist measures adding unjustified burden on operators. 

In the area of trade policy, our goal is increased and improved market access for EU dairy products on third country markets. We believe that Europe is well placed to respond to the growing global demand for dairy.
