A PERIOD of panic buying is feared by Guernsey Dairy after it told retailers it would be importing a 'small' amount of milk from Jersey.

The move comes at the same time as the Dairy's decision to suspend the production of organic milk.

Dairy general manager Andrew Tabel sent a letter to retailers confirming its hand had been forced by the poor level of milk production this year – caused by bad weather.

Production of organic milk has been suspended for seven days – it will then face continuous review – and the Dairy will now actively plan to import a 'Channel Island variant equivalent to our home-grown product'.

The letter also disclosed the Dairy's plans for keeping islanders informed of the move, with Mr Tabel saying that any alarm could stimulate panic buying.
