China has approved imports from the United Kingdom-dairy products such as sour cream and yogurt made using milk sourced from other countries, Liam Fox has announced.

Said the international Secretary of the UK trade deal for five years for a total of almost €280m (£240m) for the UK dairy industry and can give a huge boost to the Northern Ireland dairy industry.

Announcing the deal, Dr Fox said: “It is very important for Northern Ireland where the milk is often sourced from South of the border. According to our estimates it could cost a quarter of a billion pounds during the first five years.

“Lakeland dairies is a very large employer in Northern Ireland, and is likely to be the main beneficiary of this transaction. It really is very good news.”

The agreement States, to increase flexibility in the supply chain, meaning producers in Northern Ireland, for example, can export products made with milk from abroad.

Dr Fox announced the transaction, and in China, where he participates in the meeting of UK-China joint economic and trade Commission (JETCO) in Beijing.

“This is my fourth visit to China and I’m glad to see the completion of this transaction, bringing significant benefits for producers of dairy products in the UK at a time when British food and drink exports at a record high level,” he said.

A recent report Eucolait noted that politically, the quarter and month will be very difficult for the dairy industry, not least because of the good Friday agreement and the specifics of the border separating Northern Ireland Republic (future EU external borders against the common travel area).

“In this context, we would like to emphasize the huge volumes of raw milk crossing the border from the UK to Ireland every day to be processed: about 800 million liters in 2016, corresponding to some 12 pieces produced in the Irish milk pool.

“In addition, 75pc processing complex in Northern Ireland wholly or jointly owned Irish cooperatives .

“The restoration of the border, not to mention duties, would be extremely harmful to both producers in Northern Ireland and processing of milk in Ireland,” he said.
