Arla Foods Confirms Milk Price Hold for Seventh Consecutive Month

26 July 2019

UK - Arla Foods amba board director and farmer owner, Arthur Fearnall, said that global production continues to fall with commodity markets remaining quiet, resulting in relatively stable prices across Europe.

He said: "Organic markets remain stable, however, European butter prices reduced further in June as a reaction to lower cream prices but remain attractive for exports.

"Overall, European milk production is stable compared to last year although the regional differences we have seen so far this year continue, particularly in the UK and Ireland showing strong increases versus last year.

"It is being part of a strong global dairy cooperative that has enabled us to maintain our milk price for the seventh month in a row."

Graham Wilkinson, UK Agriculture director at Arla continued: "To continue delivering a sustainable milk price to our farmer owners and winning with our owners, it’s vital we not only deliver great tasting, healthy and nutritious dairy products, but that we also meet consumers rising demand for products from brands which prioritise animal welfare and the environment.

"Arla farmer owners are already in tune with the wellbeing of their cows, however we cannot stand still and are continuously looking at ways to take strong progressive positions on animal welfare and the environment that meet these expectations when it comes to consumer food choices."
