The supermarket also announced it would move to 100 per cent British milk for all Tesco own label standard yoghurts from March 1. It currently sources two thirds of its milk from Britain for these products.

 

Mike Gallacher, First Milk chief executive, said: “They [Tesco] deserve a great deal of credit for continuing to support British farmers who supply the milk which makes Tesco’s cheese.”

 

Commercial director for fresh foods and commodities at Tesco, Matt Simister, said: "Helping to create a sustainable dairy industry is integral to how we partner with British Agriculture. Tesco has a long history of supporting dairy farmers and is proud of the sourcing relationships we have with them.

 

"We recognise that it is a particularly challenging and uncertain time in the global dairy market, which is why over the past six months, we have provided additional financial support to help our First Milk farmers.

 

"With the effects of the winter still being felt across the country, we are delighted to announce we have extended the supplement."
