Dairy farmers plan Athens protest on Wednesday

The farmers wish to hold a meeting with Development Minister Costis Hadzidakis, who is responsible for drafting the law to extend the expiry date printed on fresh milk containers, in line with a set of recent recommendations by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development for improving competition.
