Weakening

 

Chris Thomson, group procurement director at Dairy Crest said, “During the last month we have seen commodity markets weaken.

 

“However, in order to provide certainty to our 330 South West farmers as we go into winter, we have made a commitment to hold our combined milk price at 30.9ppl for November, as well as introducing a floor for a further two months.”

 

DCD Chairman, Steve Bone, said, “Recognising weakening markets, to give our members security we have agreed an effective minimum price of 30.90ppl until the end of January 2019.”
