Today in the story "Breakfast with 1 + 1", dedicated to the 20th anniversary of the World Milk Day, Vice-President of #AMР Наnna Lavrenіuk spoke about the negative factors that hinder the development of the domestic dairy industry:
- unstable agrarian policy and lack of national strategy for the development of the industry, lack of mechanisms for preferential right to purchase agricultural land for dairy farm owners, as well as protection of domestic milk producers from growing imports of milk
- However, she stressed that dairy farming is an important tool for economic development and filling local and state budgets, as it generates twice as many taxes per hectare as crop production, and one dairy farm worker creates jobs for at least ten more in related industries.
"Ukraine has tasty and high-quality domestic milk and dairy products, because Ukrainian dairy farms, including #AMР members, are constantly investing in technology, quality and safety. And we, ordinary consumers, also play a significant role in the development of the domestic agricultural sector - simply by choosing «made in Ukraine» products, we invest in the development and prosperity of our country, roads, medicine and education."
