Dairy price increase from Aldi is another positive step

The NFU has today welcomed a price increase from Aldi set to be paid to farmers that supply its liquid milk following calls from consumers for retailers to better support dairy farmers.

The retailer has stated that it will have a new floor price of 28p per litre, which will be paid to processors from Monday 17th August.

NFU dairy board chairman Rob Harrison said the NFU is working to ensure that the public understand the dire situation facing dairy farmers.

Mr Harrison added: “We welcome this first step from Aldi on milk which is in line with its recent commitments to back British farmers on fruit and vegetables1. This rise must be reflected in the price paid to the farmers on the ground.

“We will continue conversations with Aldi as it looks to develop its position on cheese and other dairy products.”
