“The uncertain situation we are experiencing due to the coronavirus emergency – explains Coldiretti Lombardia – cannot automatically translate into a drop in the price that does not even cover production costs. All this, however, while the prices of spot milk have increased by 7% in value in the last month, the prices on the shelves have grown and the Ho.re.ca channel has restarted. ”
“In a delicate moment like this in which the country system tries to start again – continues Coldiretti – everyone should appeal to the sense of responsibility and support national production, favoring Made in Italy in the procurement of industries and commercial distribution. The future of a sector is at stake – according to Coldiretti – only in Lombardy it produces more than 40% of Italian milk thanks to the work done in more than 5 thousand farms with 500 thousand dairy cows. When a stall closes – Coldiretti concludes – an entire system of animals, meadows for forage, typical cheeses and above all people committed to fighting, often for entire generations, depopulation and degradation is lost “.
