ABSTRACT
The article reports on the criticism made by the Farmers for Action (FFA) against the National Farmers Union (NFU) for not supporting its policy of taking direct action against retailers over milk prices in Great Britain. FFA chairman David Handley urges NFU to warn retailers over milk prices. Based on a survey, there is a 4 pint per litre gap between the milk prices and milk production cost. Handley also argues that NFU president Peter Kendall should inform the public on the lack of profitability among dairy farmers.
