European School Milk Scheme
We have been continuing to pursue a meeting with Defra to discuss both the post-July 2017 European School Milk Scheme and an eventual national UK replacement, and we are now close to finalising a date.
This month saw an opinion article authored by Dr Hilary Jones in EDUcatering magazine, focusing on the importance of the EU scheme as well as the Eatwell Guide and the School Food Standards. An article on the history of school milk was also published in the National Farmers Union consumer magazine Countryside, covering a range of issues including the future of the EU scheme.
We also prepared a response to the European Commission’s consultation on the implementing acts for the revised European legislation which sets out further details on the revised EU School Milk Scheme.
