1ppl Milk Price reduction for Muller Direct Farmers from 1st October
Muller have announced a 1ppl Milk Price reduction for their Direct Farmers from 1st October.
This takes producer’s standard litre price to 25.75ppl for the majority of producers who meet the Muller direct premium (estimated to be 80% of producers) which others will receive a standard litre price of 25.25ppl. The 0.5ppl premium is paid to qualifying farmers annually in arrears effectively as a 13th payment.
Muller commented that the price reduction “reflects record levels of milk production at a time when the industry is facing marginal decline in demand for fresh milk and other dairy products”.
Rob Hutchison, milk supply director, said the dairy supply chain in the UK is experiencing an 'extremely difficult period'.
