First Milk and Arla raise milk price for ex-DFB producers
HUNDREDS of ex-DFB producers are to receive improved milk prices from First Milk and Arla.
In the case of First Milk, some 80 per cent of the 410 ex-DFB producers on milk supply contracts are to be offered full membership and a standard litre price of 22.06ppl. They are currently on 19.65ppl.
Arla is raising the ex-DFB producer price to 21ppl for September - it is retrospective and based on market realisation - but says it expects to be able to utilise all their milk within the business in October and November and the price should match that of the standard litre contract price which is 24ppl at present.
The First Milk offer is full membership from November 1 subject to a 0.3ppl capital retention.
