Arla Foods amba confirms hold for August milk price

The Arla on-account prices for conventional and organic milk will remain unchanged from 1 August 2021. 

This means that when applied to the standard manufacturing litre Arla’s milk price will remain at 33.20 pence per litre for conventional milk and 41.56 pence per litre for organic milk for Arla’s farmer owners.

Arla Foods amba board director, and farmer owner, Arthur Fearnall, said: “European milk intake has picked up with growth in April, with the indication that growth will continue in May and June. Commodity market prices softened slightly more than expected towards the end of June, mainly for cheese and milk powder.  The summer outlook remains stable.”
