Dairy farmers supplying Müller who meet the conditions for Müller Advantage will receive a milk price of 32.00ppl from 1 January 2022, a 2.00ppl increase.
Müller Advantage aims to improve supply chain collaboration, herd health and reduce environmental impact and 99.5% of eligible supplying dairy farmers have opted to commit to the programme.
Rob Hutchison, chief operating officer at Müller Milk & Ingredients said: “The whole dairy supply chain is facing into increased inflationary pressure, and we know that our supplying farmers are seeing rising production costs.
“With markets strengthening, we wanted to make farmers aware of this decision as early as possible, giving them the information to support forward planning over the winter period.
“We will of course continue to monitor supply and demand in the coming months.”
