Arla Foods amba increases its milk price for September

The Arla Foods amba on-account price for conventional milk will increase by 1.25 eurocents per kilogramme (1.01pence per kg), from 1 September.

When applied to the UK standard litre for conventional milk, the increase equates to an upward movement of one pence, taking it to 20.05 pence.

Commenting on the decision, Arla Foods amba board director, Jonathan Ovens, said: “This is welcome news for our farmer owners who continue to face challenging times on farm. Our increase will hopefully reaffirm their confidence in the dairy industry, after 18 months of falling prices.

“Commodity markets have continued to strengthen, as indicated by the increase in the latest GDT auction. This follows a significant downturn in milk production and increases in yellow cheese prices across Europe, while prices across European retail markets are also firming.”
