This is the first year of data that we’ve been able to collate, and will set the base for future comparisons.
Initial estimates for April 2021 put organic production at 45.3 million litres. That would be just 0.4m litres (-0.8%) lower than April last year.
It should be noted that these numbers are provisional. We have started to estimate GB organic milk production as part of our weekly survey of the largest milk buyers. The volumes are scaled up based on other available data, including the official Defra organic report. The aim over the coming weeks is to start publishing daily deliveries data for GB organic milk along the lines of the current overall daily deliveries information.
