Robust farmer representation is an essential part of the long term partnership we want to develop with our farmers.
We believe there are real benefits in working together with a fit for purpose representative structure in order to develop a greater understanding of the challenges we both face and our plans for the future.
The new MMG representative structure is based on a 21 member elected Farmer’s Forum who are responsible for electing the Farmer Board. Müller will consult regularly with the MMG Farmer Board on all matters relating to milk supply including milk price, operational terms and operational procedures.
Any farmer supplying us can stand for election to the MMG Forum if they have three nominations from Müller farmers in their area/aligned pool region.
Elections for the first Farmer’s Forum will take place at the end of March 2017.
