Freshways confirms 50p/litre price hold

Freshways will pay producers 50p/litre in November for its “A” litre milk price.

Prices are based on a standard liquid litre of 4% butterfat and 3.3% protein.

This is the third month the processor has held prices at this level and will put prices in October up by 20p/litre compared with the same month last year.

Freshways managing director Bali Nijjar wrote to suppliers and said: “Though we are starting to come under pressure from lower prices in the marketplace, we have assured our customers that we believe our liquid dairy competitors will have no choice but to increase the price they are offering or risk a shortfall in supplies.

“We have seen recent price increases in multiples, but still believe that milk is being very undersold when compared to its nutrient values and comparing it to any other liquid available to drink on a shelf,” said Mr Nijjar.

The processor has reportedly managed to recruit new farmers during September and is looking to take on more new members to its supplier group.
