Müller will initially work closely with a group of approximately 25 Müller Direct young farmers who have the potential to create thriving dairy businesses.

The dairy company has already confirmed unprecedented investment in its UK network of dairies to enable it to build an additional £700m worth of sales of dairy products made with milk from British farmers, by 2020.

Müller Direct Next Generation follows the launch of Müller Farm Insight and the Müller Direct Futures Contract option in 2017, initiatives designed to build a bright future for Müller Direct farmers.

Fully supported and funded by Müller, the dairy company will work directly with ambitious young farmers, over a three year period, by providing them with bespoke training on everything from benchmarking and market analysis, to business improvement planning.

The group will meet three times per year and will serve as a forum, enabling the farmers to share knowledge and best practice.
