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..
