From 1st November 2023, the Arla on-account price for conventional milk will remain unchanged and will increase by 1.77ppl (2.0c/kg) for organic milk.
This means the UK manufacturing price for conventional and organic milk will be 35.21ppl and 42.65ppl respectively.
Arla Foods amba board director, and Arla farmer, Arthur Fearnall, said: “Global milk supplies have stabilised, and in certain areas in Europe there are signs of a production slowdown. Retail sales continue to pick up and it is pleasing that we can increase our UK organic milk price as a result of an improved product and market mix. Global commodity markets are also recovering after the drop in August, while European markets are firming up. The outlook is stable. However, with cautious optimism driven by the market outlook.”
Jonathan Dixon, senior vice president of sales at Arla’s UK, added: “There are specific challenges in the organic category, which have been especially impacted by the cost of living crisis. We have been working hard to improve the returns on our organic range, and whilst challenges remain, it is good news that we can now increase the organic milk price in the UK.”
