Invitation to the conference on 14 June 2017 in Würzburg, Bavaria

We have the pleasure of inviting you to the 4th European Fair Milk Conference, which will take place on 14th  June 2017 in Würzburg, Germany.

With the slogan Fair Milk, the European Milk Board and its members draw attention to the necessity of fair milk prices. This year as well, besides the presentation of the fair milk projects in the different countries, the highlight of the event will be the award ceremony of the “Golden Faironika”. This award recompenses politicians and farmers for their commitment in the field of sustainable and fair food production.

We are looking forward to welcoming you at the conference and to present you innovative projects of European dairy farmers.
