AHDB Dairy’s strategic aspiration includes a desire to stimulate supply chain improvements and efficiencies by comparing domestic and global performance pre and post farm gate to learn from the best in the world. This will enable the industry to better understand its competitive position, and where to target collective effort, in order to thrive in a post-Brexit environment.

AHDB has offered benchmarking tools to dairy farmers for a number of years, but there continues to be an information gap for the remainder of the supply chain. This project looks to help build understanding of the milk processing part of the supply chain and what influences efficiency. The project will take inspiration from the best operators in the world, with the aim of determining how those practices could be applied within GB.
