Tatura Milk suppliers will hear about new incentives to boost milk production at a meeting tonight.
Bega Cheese, Tatura Milk’s parent company, has announced it will allocate up to $25 million to secure a long term, sustainable and growing milk supply.
Bega Chairman Barry Irvin said that it is important for the company to develop strategies that more strongly link the needs of the company and its suppliers.
‘‘With competition for milk expected to increase and a relatively static Australian milk supply it is important to think about new approaches that encourage existing suppliers to invest and sustainably grow their milk supply and for the company to have longer term supply security which allows long term business growth objectives to be met.’’
Bega Cheese directors and senior management met suppliers in Western Victoria last night and will meet suppliers in Tatura tonight, Bega on Thursday night and Gippsland later this month.
