From 1st November 2022, the Arla on-account price for conventional and organic milk will increase by 1.33 ppl (1.5 €c/kg), except for the CE organic milk price which will increase by 0.5 €c/kg.
When applied to the UK manufacturing price for conventional and organic milk this is a 1.33 pence per litre (ppl) increase, bringing Arla’s farmgate conventional and organic milk price to 52.24 ppl and 57.02 ppl respectively.
Arla Foods amba board director, and farmer owner, Arthur Fearnall, said: “While European commodity prices have been stabilising over the last month they remain at a high level and as we approach the winter months, this latest increase to both our conventional and organic milk price is certainly welcome. Global milk supply levels have also been stabilising. The outlook is stable, albeit with a certain level of uncertainty.”
Paul Savage, Agriculture Director for Arla UK adds: “The price of production for dairy, including prices for feed, fuel and fertiliser continues to rise to unprecedented levels. While the European organic milk market remains challenging, I am pleased that we have been able to work with our customers to secure further increases to support our farmers through these challenging times.”
