    Re: Arla

    Having been involved in work on the payment schedule, I can say it has been a process of consultation. Some of the changes that immediately come to mind, include the fact that the whole of Arla has...

    Re: Dairy protests

    Except that Arla spent a lot of work making sure the UK product looked and tasted the same! I think there maybe a sour Kiwi or placebo effect in there. All anchor butter and cheese available in UK...

    Re: Dairy protests

    That would be at least a year out of date, then Arla were wanting more owner milk because they were buying third party milk at a high price. No one is saying we want more now, but Arla have always...

    Arla reduced by 0.8 ppl for August, swiftly followed by Muller with a 0.8ppl drop, currently they are following every move, so if this stops another fall (world market has fallen even further since...

    in reality our milk price has been impacted by currency over the years, although we have generally sat at a fairly consistent level below the European price, apart from a few periods which did not...

    In March there was a currency correction as well of about -0.4ppl . At the start of July there will be another currency correction due of around -0.5 ppl at current exchange rate.

  9. Re: Is it time we all got the same milk price as the dedicated Supermarket Contracts

    Most Arla directs are aligned mainly with Tesco. There are also a few non-aligned that choose not to become members of Arla via AmCo last year. That might make sense if they knew they were close to...

    By the market, I meant any market where milk can be sold for the best price possible in this situation. We do need to squeeze existing ones but also find new ones, every cost needs looking at again...

    Re: Arla

    The production bonus is being put back into price, effectively everyone in AML gets it. That is partly why the 0.32ppl supplement is stopping. The headline figure of the standard litre reduction...

    Current world price based on most recent GDT auction 19ppl. Current uk milk price close to 30ppl for most, dropping next month to 26-29 ppl depending on buyer. Therefore UK premium is 7-10ppl. In...

    Re: Arla

    So does the suppliers whose milk go via Omsco get a different price to the Arla suppliers not through Omsco, wouldn't be fair in a co-op. The market does pay for BF,P,SCC and bactoscan but bactoscan...
