Sherwood MP Mark Spencer was at the centre of the new Dairy Makes a Difference initiative launch at the House of Commons to lend his support to the dairy industry and highlight the benefits of dairy products.
The campaign will showcase the many ways in which Dairy Makes a Difference and its contributions to the economy, the environment, public health, nutrition and much more.
MPs, politicians at regional and local level as well industry groups and members of the public are being asked to sign up to Dairy Makes a difference via an interactive web page www.dairymakesadifference.org.
Dairy Makes a Difference is being launched by Dairy UK to underpin the growing confidence within the UK industry. Under Secretary of State for farming, food and marine environment George Eustice was the guest speaker at the launch and was joined by Parliamentarians from all major parties who signed written declarations of how ‘Dairy Makes a Difference’ to them.
Mark Spencer said: “I am delighted to support the dairy industry in Nottinghamshire and the Dairy Makes a Difference initiative. We all enjoy looking at our beautiful countryside with cattle fields - dairy farmers put a lot of work into looking after that countryside. Dairy Makes a Difference by providing our children with fresh milk to their diet, which makes them grow strong and healthy.”
