Dairy farmers supplying Müller who meet the conditions laid out in Müller Advantage will receive a milk price of 46p per litre from the 1st of July, a 4.5p increase.
Rob Hutchison, joint chief executive officer at Müller Milk & Ingredients said: “We are continuing to see extraordinary increases in input costs throughout our entire supply chain from farm to shelf, including but not limited to fertiliser, feed, energy, packaging, and logistics.
“We are doing everything we can to support our farmers and protect the security of supply for the millions of consumers who enjoy the dairy products we make. We will closely monitor all of the factors which influence farm gate milk price, including farm supplies in the coming months.”
Müller Advantage aims to improve supply chain collaboration, herd health and reductions in the environmental impact and 99.5% of eligible supplying farmers have opted to commit to the programme.
