Commenting on the announcement of the EU referendum result, Dr Judith Bryans, Chief Executive of Dairy UK, said:
"The UK dairy industry is adaptable, resilient and determined, with the skills and innovation to rise to the many challenges we encounter. Dairy UK did not take a side in this debate because we knew that regardless of the result, we would continue to operate in a global dairy market place and demonstrate our unwavering commitment to give the public nothing but the best of UK dairy.
"Dairy UK will continue to liaise with the UK Government, devolved administrations and all relevant organisations to promote the interests of the UK dairy sector and help to steer our industry in the right direction.
"We have an outstanding UK industry producing world-class products and our people have the ambition and the determination to succeed."
