Milk price changes

Updated 6 February 2020

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


Milk price changes in February were a mixture of increases and decreases. The prices paid on Tesco aligned contracts fell by 0.26ppl following its quarterly price review. First Milk have reduced the price on both its liquid and manufacturing contracts by 0.50ppl while Saputo dropped by 0.70ppl.

Meanwhile, price increases were announced by Meadow Foods and Freshways. Meadow Foods have increased by 0.50ppl on A litres, while Freshways have split its 1.0ppl increase into two components. The first 0.50ppl will be paid on all A litres supplied, while the other half will only apply to those producers who remain within 5% of their forecasted production.

Muller M&I have also announced an increase on its Co-operative contract of 0.01ppl.

Looking ahead to March, Crediton have dropped its price by 1ppl citing the sharp reduction in cream prices, though it is the first change since April 2019. Saputo have further reduced its price by 0.5ppl but have promised a price floor until the end of June this year. Conversely, Meadow Foods have added another 0.5ppl to its price, following a similar increase in February.
