Milk price changes

Updated 05 November 2020

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


Milk price changes announced in November were mostly positive, with a couple of reductions on cost-based Tesco-aligned contracts. For companies listed on the AHDB milk price changes table (download below) increases were in the range of +0.13ppl and +1.0ppl. Price reductions on the retailer-aligned contracts stood at -0.56ppl.

Looking ahead, several companies have reportedly announced a hold on prices until January, including Belton Farm Cheese, Crediton, Freshways, Grahams, Muller Direct, Saputo and Yew Tree Dairy. Meanwhile, for those supplying Barbers Cheesemakers, an increase of 1ppl is reported for December.

Despite the on-going COVID-19 pandemic, wholesale prices have remained strong recently which has helped support increases in farmgate prices. However, with the latest lockdown in England starting from 5 November, all eyes will now turn to how wholesale markets react.
