  • July | 2014 | Posts | Irish Co-Operative Organisation Society
    2014 One challenge for directors of dairy co operatives in an increasingly globalised market is to have an understanding of the likely future structure and operation of global dairy markets Such an understanding permits directors to make a more informed input at board level when it comes to approving the future strategic direction of their co operative The Global Dairy Platform GDP is an international organisation that provides direction to the dairy industry It connects various industry stake holders in a forum designed to assist them collaborate on worldwide dairy issues at a pre competitive level GDP is focused on expanding global demand for milk and dairy products through a more co ordinated effort across regions to promote the dairy industry Part of a recent international workshop organised by GDP focused on The Future of Dairy Marketing The workshop was based upon a strategic scenario planning exercise undertaken with SAMI Consulting a UK based futurist think tank At the workshop attendees sought to develop an understanding of how global trends may affect dairy s role in food and nutrition security Some of the facts and insights that emerged from the workshop were as follows By 2035 we will have a world with an increasing population estimated at 8 billion with increasing expectations less supply more demand Most of the additional growth will be in Africa and in South and South East Asia The percentage of the population living in cities will approach 70 percent By 2035 25 of the 50 biggest cities will be in Asia 10 in Africa and the western business model may no longer dominate The new centres of power may not share the value or governance systems of the West There may be a move from western to global trends and global role models The rapidly emerging middle class will demand higher quality for example animal proteins There will be an even greater need to be proactive on food security and sustainability There will be increasing demand for transparency along the supply chain The world is moving to more choice for more people Rapidly developing new technology is affecting people and their lifestyles farming and food production manufacturing and supply etc Information is increasingly personalised and marketers are using our electronic footprint Facebook twitter google to position their offerings The extended age range of people making buying choices means that the food industry need to understand the mind set of the next generation as well as changing needs of the older population Technology info cogno bio nano will continue to introduce changes in personal capacity and lifestyles with information and communication technologies underpinning much of society as well as commerce with universal ownership of electronic devices Ecological energy and environmental systemic limits will be tested or breached as the population increases Against this background SAMI posited that National markets were becoming less important as determinants of behaviour with different consumer groupings beginning to emerge across national boundaries One societal development they argued could be the emergence

  • Tesco Confirms 20 days Final Residency for Cattle is OK | Posts | Irish Co-Operative Organisation Society
    movements between quality assured farms during the 70 day period The Irish meat factories enforce this measure through their Quality Payment System where cattle that have moved holdings in the last 70 days before slaughter are penalised and do not qualify for the QPS bonus The QPS is also withheld if cattle have had more than four movements from farm to farm prior to slaughter even if all farms are quality assured This practice discriminates specifically against the livestock marts sector where Irish meat factories have effectively removed trade in factory fit animals from livestock marts The volume of factory fit animals going to slaughter via a livestock mart has decreased significantly and there is also an ongoing decrease in the cull cow trade in marts Since the introduction of QPS only 2 48 of factory fit animals are now being traded in a mart The 70 days residency stipulation is also affecting forward store sales in marts The factory QPS bonus is 12 cents kg or approximately 50 per animal This amounts to a form of price fixing for fat stock sales as a farmer loses this payment if an animal has been traded through a mart in the 70 day finishing period prior to slaughter The factories contend that the basis for this restriction is consumer driven However there is no scientifically based animal welfare or meat quality rationale for the imposition of this movement restriction which has the effect of distorting free trade Also in the UK retailer ASDA imposes no specifications either on the number of farms an animal has been on or if it has moved through a mart in the last 70 days The onerous conditions imposed by meat plants around the movement of livestock have no basis in terms of regulation or meat quality and no justification on animal welfare or veterinary grounds They are simply being used as a market control measure ICOS the Irish Co operative Organisation Society represents co operatives and organisations in Ireland including the Irish dairy processing co operatives and livestock marts whose associated businesses have a combined turnover in the region of 14 billion with some 150 000 individual members employing 12 000 people in Ireland and a further 24 000 people overseas Outside of ICOS member co ops it is estimated that over 3 million Irish people are members of at least one co operative Ray Doyle Livestock Environmental Services Executive ICOS Tel Direct 353 0 1 613 1319 Tim Kinsella MKC Communications 086 813 7512 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
