Direct Sales of milk

Christine Page made this Freedom of Information request to Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board,

Further to my previous request for details of annual milk production that you have declined to provide under the exemption of sections 43 (2) of FOIA since it may be likely to prejudice the commercial interests of those producers if provided to a competitor.

Would it be possible please then to ask for annual direct sales of milk by production holding but where the holding details are withheld such that it cannot prejudice commercial interests in any way? Please would you provide this information not just by country within Great Britain, but also by county assuming there is no county with a single producer that may, thus, be identifiable.

Thank you for your time and for your previous prompt reply.

Yours faithfully,

Christine Page

Guy Attenborough, Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board

Attached is a table of the annual litres of milk produced by the 263
direct milk suppliers we collect levy from - for the 12 months ending 31

We have given the information at England, Scotland, Wales level, since at
county level many of them could be identified.
