Dairy Crest is announcing a 2ppl increase from 1 January 2017 followed by a further 2ppl increase from 1 February 2017. This has been agreed with Dairy Crest Direct (DCD).
This means the Davidstow milk price will be 28ppl from 1 January 2017 and 30ppl from 1 February 2017.
Ruth Askew, Head of Procurement at Dairy Crest, said: “Dairy Crest is delighted to announce these substantial price increases. Throughout the last eighteen months – some of the most difficult which dairy farmers have faced in recent years - Dairy Crest has been proud to pay a leading milk price.
“As the market continues to strengthen, we want to reflect this in the price we pay to our farmers. This significant move reflects Dairy Crest’s determination to build confidence and resilience within our milk pool.”
DCD Chairman Steve Bone commented: "We are really pleased that Dairy Crest has acted decisively by increasing the price and doing so over a two month period. This is what we needed from our negotiations and it will give our farmers a much-needed boost in confidence as Winter kicks in.”
