Lakeland Dairies AGM goes online

Lakeland Dairies will hold the co-operative’s Annual General Meeting online at 11am on Wednesday, December 2, and has written to all members inviting them to register.

While usually the co-operative’s AGM would be held with members attending in person, this year’s meeting will take place online in view of ongoing recommendations and restrictions that are in place to support public health during the current pandemic crisis.

Michael Hanley, Group CEO of Lakeland Dairies, said: “It’s very important for Lakeland Dairies to hold an AGM for members to gather and review the business of their society and, while the clear preference would be to hold a physical meeting, this is not possible due to the current crisis where the health and safety of our members, milk producers, staff and communities is our number one priority.

"The online meeting will contain all of the usual business of a physical AGM and we are encouraging members to register and attend.”

The AGM is open only to Lakeland Dairies’ shareholders and all relevant details are included in the Notice of AGM, which has been posted out directly to members. Participants will need to use a home computer, laptop, smartphone or tablet to attend. The Member Relations team at Lakeland Dairies are also available to answer any enquiries.
