Arla adjusts its milk price for its non-owners
Arla Foods is reducing its milk price for its direct supplying farmers by 1.5ppl, with effect from 1 July 2014.
Commenting on the adjustment, Ash Amirahmadi, Arla head of milk and member services, said: “This takes Arla’s direct standard litre to 32 pence, with no further deductions to be made, and continues to be one of the leading prices in the UK. It reflects the recent, negative, trend in commodity markets, to which, unfortunately, the business is not immune.
“It is the first reduction in Arla’s direct milk price this year, despite downward moves in other milk buyer’s direct milk prices in June.”
Arla’s direct suppliers, who are aligned to a retailer, are not affected.
