Arla confirms May price hold

Arla has confirmed it will hold its price for May 2019, keeping its UK manufacturing litre for conventional milk at 30.23ppl.

The organic price remains at 41.98ppl.

Arla Foods amba board director, and farmer owner, Johnnie Russell, said: “Overall, European milk volumes are stable compared to last year.

“While there has been significant volume growth in some markets including the UK, we continue to see the benefits of being owners of a business with global reach within our milk price.”

He added the organic market continued to experience pressure in some countries but was stable overall.

“European markets are unusually quiet overall with Yellow cheese prices having reduced in the last month and butter prices remaining stable.

“We are now seeing a world commodity market where prices are higher than current European prices. This should be good news for export opportunities across our cooperative.”

Membership

Graham Wilkinson, UK Agriculture director at Arla added: “Delivering a sustainable milk price is our main purpose and, as a farmer-owned business, our member democracy is important to our success.

“With Farmer owners in seven European countries, it is our democracy that enables farmer owners to make all decisions together and which makes Arla one of the strongest players in the international dairy arena.

“The recent round of UK spring farmer meetings has demonstrated the strength of our democracy in action and we continue our journey to securing a sustainable milk price for the future of our farmer owners’ businesses.”
