A recent conference in Glasgow seems to think this could be a reality. Several spokespeople from the industry showed concern that there was too many alternatives (plant based), in fact their concern put a time limit on their own industry (10 years), unless something changes for them. The chief executive of trade (Dairy UK), Judith Byron said they are launching a new campaign to promote there industry and attempt to fight the growing negativity image the industry has.
A sustainability consultant (Judith Capper) said, “While vegans comprise a small portion of the population in the UK, their collective ethical message or very loud voices is making an impact“.
“There is a need in the dairy sector for some myth busting,” Capper said. “If consumers don’t buy our products—milk, cream, butter, cheese, etc.—we will not have a dairy industry in five to 10 years.” Professor Patrick Wall of Dublin University pointed the panelists to other competitors set to challenge the appeal of animal dairy milk. “We also have a United States firm going into production next year with a cow-free milk product called Perfect Day,”
Patrick Walls also said. “It is animal-free milk. They have cut out the middleman, as in the cow.” .
Lets hope we the dairy industry listens to changes to a more ethical plant based alternative. We can only live in hope..

The latest news that is doing the rounds on the interweb is that Jeremy Corbyn vows to help plant based business, the Labour leader recently said we all need to do our bit for the environment. “Climate change”, is a threat to our very existence”, adding “The science is clear” and that , “without urgent action to change our eating habits, large parts of the world will become “uninhabitable” giving rise to “millions of climate refugees”
What these plans are we are unsure, but sounds exciting to say the least.
Corbyn himself is a vegetarian and has been for almost 50 years. “I became one at 20 when I was working in a pig farm,” he has previously said. “I got attached to the pigs.”
