Global Co: Stick To The Issues

Media Release

5 June 2001

Global Co: Stick To The Issues

‘Farmers for a Better Dairy Deal’ have called on all dairy industry leaders to study their analysis, take on board the fact that many dairy farmers don’t want Global Co (GDC), and debate the issues.

Spokesman Mark Masters said new issues and analysis had been presented by his group today and, given the high level of farmer interest this had sparked, demanded full consideration by everyone in the dairy industry.

“We are staggered at the level of farmer unease about GDC that we have exposed.

“Every dairy farmer who has contacted us has praised our courage and leadership in raising these issues to foster real debate.

Mark Masters expressed disappointment that some people have already tried to personalise the debate at the expense of focusing on the issues and genuine alternatives we have raised.

“Every dairy farmer has already recognised that we must rid the industry of cheap politics and focus on creating a commercially robust business.
