The price has moved upwards on the back of rises in commodity prices
Arla has confirmed its price for conventional and organic milk will increase by 1.5 euro cents per kilo from April 1.
UK producers would also feel the positive impact of a 0.04ppl quarterly currency exchange rate adjustment.
Together these rises take the UK manufacturing litre up 1.40ppl to 31.43ppl with the organic price at 39.79ppl.
Arla Foods amba board director, and farmer owner, Arthur Fearnall, said there had been a significant increase in commodity market prices.
“Strong Chinese demand for WMP has driven global powder prices, with lower milk production in Europe increasing butter and cream prices here,” he said.
“As a result, cheese buyers have had to increase their prices to secure their supply. The current outlook is stable, with the potential for further positive development.”
Alice Swift, UK agriculture director at Arla added it showed the ‘strength’ of the European cooperative.
“We are proud of the work our farmer owners are doing to lead the sustainability agenda, their commitment to Arlagarden Plus and our world leading Climate Checks.
“Consumers are looking for brands which have sustainability at their core and sustainability requires investment, so giving our farmer owners the confidence to invest for the future is important.”
