Dairygold last week sent out a leaflet to over 3,000 of their milk suppliers. In this leaflet they highlighted their decision to collaborate with Zurich Insurance, with the hope of providing “preferential rates to Dairygold members”.

The move, which has received its share of criticism, has been defended by management of the company. In a statement released they said that “Dairygold board and management are constantly seeking opportunities to provide financial benefits for its members”.

The statement also explained that a number of product and service providers were negotiated with to ensure preferential offers for its members, and it has also led to very intriguing offers been put on the table by companies such as Zurich and Top Oil.

The explained they outcome of these negotiations saying that members have been offered the chance to obtain a new Dairygold/top oil fuel card which can be used for the purchase of fuels at competitive prices. They also added that the deal offered, and accepted, by Zurich is in relationship to farm, vehicle and household insurance.

"Top Oil is offering all Dairygold members and customers the opportunity to apply for a Dairygold/Top Oil fuel card which can be used to purchase diesel, petrol and sulphur-free gas oil at very competitive prices.
The Zurich offer relates to farm, household and vehicle insurance and it commits to providing competitive quotes with some specific enhancements to Dairygold members,". Dairygold management also stressed that it is up to farmers to deal with suppliers directly not the company.

A Zurich spokesperson meanwhile spoke of their delight at the new deal saying they are “…delighted to be developing an affinity scheme with Dairygold to offer competitive farm insurance solutions for its members."
