  • ICOS Welcomes Progress to Spread Superlevy Pain Over 3 Years | Posts | Irish Co-Operative Organisation Society
    years He said this was particularly important given the cashflow pressure likely to be felt on many dairy farms in 2015 arising from a combination of weaker markets the ongoing Russian ban and investment in expansion The prospect of up to 2 Billion in superlevy fines being paid by European dairy farmers into the general EU budget in 2015 was particularly unjust Last year Irish co ops were the first in Europe to pursue internal schemes to spread the superlevy cost However ICOS also continued to push for an official EU approach which would alleviate the burden on co ops and their members This latest announcement is very welcome as it will give a boost to farmers cash flow and allow them to continue to develop their enterprises We would like to thank the Commissioner and his team for the work they have done on the matter and ICOS remains available to help iron out the workings of any proposed scheme at national and EU level if required Keane concluded Ends Archive Recent Posts ICOS Announces New CEO Designate ICOS EUROPEAN AFFAIRS EXECUTIVE BRUSSELS BASED Not Much Sign of Positivity for 2016 Agricultural Export Subsidies Scrapped at WTO Nairobi Deal EU Philippines Trade Deal An Opportunity for Irish Dairy Co ops Archives January 2016 December 2015 November 2015 October 2015 September 2015 August 2015 July 2015 June 2015 May 2015 April 2015 March 2015 February 2015 January 2015 December 2014 November 2014 October 2014 September 2014 August 2014 July 2014 June 2014 May 2014 April 2014 March 2014 February 2014 January 2014 December 2013 November 2013 October 2013 September 2013 August 2013 July 2013 June 2013 May 2013 April 2013 March 2013 February 2013 January 2013 December 2012 November 2012 October 2012 June 2012 April 2012 January 2012 December 2011

  • Have We Dodged A Bullet? | Posts | Irish Co-Operative Organisation Society
    New Zealand milk production had been running over 5 ahead of the previous year The subsequent drop off must however be seen in the context of a very strong second half last year where record milk prices drove production NZX report volumes of cows culled to January this year have been 37 higher than normal with prices 20 higher than the year earlier In addition Fonterra have announced that it is reducing the volume of WMP available on the GDT auction Volumes for the remainder of this season will be over 40 less than the previous season Meanwhile UK milk production has slowed down and is now running at just over 1 above last year This is thought to be caused by a combination of cold weather and low prices The weak euro while a help to Irish producers is damaging UK producer prospects It must be remembered that US milk production is still growing by over 3 per annum and that we are about to see a milk supply surge post April Also we still have the Russian embargo and the Chinese don t seem to have gotten back into buying powder Therefore we need to take a balanced view on market prospects but as of now it would appear that we luckily hit the worst of the bear market just as we were out of production and we may see somewhat stronger markets as we come back into supply Commodity Prices Archive Recent Posts ICOS Announces New CEO Designate ICOS EUROPEAN AFFAIRS EXECUTIVE BRUSSELS BASED Not Much Sign of Positivity for 2016 Agricultural Export Subsidies Scrapped at WTO Nairobi Deal EU Philippines Trade Deal An Opportunity for Irish Dairy Co ops Archives January 2016 December 2015 November 2015 October 2015 September 2015 August 2015 July 2015 June 2015

  • Dairy in SE Asia – Different Mentality needed due to Consumption Differences | Posts | Irish Co-Operative Organisation Society
    with growing dairy product demand in the region ICOS has worked with the Chinese mission here in Brussels and one of the key messages that the give us is to localise what we want to sell into the country taking into account the highly diverse regional differences in China and this is only one albeit massive country in Asia Co ops have made their mark on the shelves with Friesland Campina and Fonterra products figuring prominently But it must be noted often with local variations and products that would be unrecognisable to us in Ireland Although it was heartening to find 3 different types of Kerrygold butter in a super market in Cambodia so we are making a dent In terms of price even though incomes are a fraction of Irish norms consumer prices are very attractive epically within the functional food brackets such as infant formula food for older people etc It was also interesting to see in smaller shops that these types of foot were kept behind the counter in the same may razors and batteries are at home The lack of a discernible appetite for consumer cheese and butter is very clear along with the popping up of specialist dairy stores in cities that look like pharmacies and stock nothing but dairy products from single companies Archive Recent Posts ICOS Announces New CEO Designate ICOS EUROPEAN AFFAIRS EXECUTIVE BRUSSELS BASED Not Much Sign of Positivity for 2016 Agricultural Export Subsidies Scrapped at WTO Nairobi Deal EU Philippines Trade Deal An Opportunity for Irish Dairy Co ops Archives January 2016 December 2015 November 2015 October 2015 September 2015 August 2015 July 2015 June 2015 May 2015 April 2015 March 2015 February 2015 January 2015 December 2014 November 2014 October 2014 September 2014 August 2014 July 2014 June 2014
