Dairy Crest has announced it will hold the milk price it pays to its Davidstow farmers for the fourth consecutive month.
It means its manufacturing standard litre milk price will remain at 29.9ppl for May. This has been agreed with Dairy Crest Direct (DCD).
“We recognise the importance of giving our farmers stability so this is the fourth consecutive month that our milk price has been at 29.9ppl,” said Chris Thomson, Group Procurement Director at Dairy Crest.
“Earlier this month, our Executive Board met with our Davidstow farmers during our annual farmer meetings.
“As the expansion at Davidstow progresses and we continue with the transition to the new milk pricing schedule, we recognise the importance of keeping our farmers informed and being available to answer any questions.
“We were pleased with the high turnout and level of engagement from our farmers.”
DCD Chairman, Steve Bone, said, “Dairy Crest Direct appreciates the confidence that this continuing stability brings to our members.”
