Meadow Foods drops September milk price by 1.75ppl #teamdairy

The change will apply to the flat rate element on the price schedule.

Mark Chantler, chief executive of Meadow Foods, said: “Despite holding our milk price over the past five months in a weakening dairy market, the pressure from unprecedentedly high milk volumes this year combined with the sharp fall in cream value has led to the adjustment in milk price.

 

“We will continue to monitor the market and the potential impact of Brexit, and hope that the market returns to a more positive balance swiftly.”
