First Milk Delivers Second Consecutive Monthly Milk Price Increase

First Milk has today announced that its member milk price will increase by 0.5ppl from June 1, 2021. This means that its price on a manufacturing standard litre will increase to 29.93ppl, including the member premium.

Commenting on the announcement, Robert Craig, farmer director and vice chairman, said:

“This increase has been possible as a result of improvements in market returns, as well as the benefits of our continued capital investment in driving efficiency and productivity at our processing sites.”
