Milk price changes

Updated 04 March 2021

The latest publicly announced milk price changes as reported by the processors.


Nearly all prices were held for March with only one change in our table. This was an increase of 0.44ppl on the UK Arla Farmers Manufacturing contract, effective from 1 March.

Looking into April, Barber’s cheesemakers and Saputo have both announced a hold on prices for the month. There was an increase of 0.25ppl announced for the Arla Direct contract and M&S suppliers will see a 0.6ppl increase.

Following the announcement of a 1ppl reduction as of March 1, Freshways have confirmed there will be no further decreases for the next 4 months. They have also committed to increase the milk price by 1.5ppl from 1 July on the expectation of a recovery in the foodservice, leisure and hospitality sectors following the government’s roadmap to ease lockdown restrictions.
