Milk price changes

Updated 02 September 2021

The latest publicly announced milk price changes as reported by the processors.


September was a quiet month for milk price changes, with only a couple of announcements made. The majority of prices in our list were held for the month. There was one price increase announced, of 0.50ppl from Crediton Dairy. Meanwhile, the price on the UK Arla Manufacturing contract dropped by 0.90ppl . This is the first price drop recorded since February of this year.

Looking ahead, Crediton, Saputo and Barbers Cheesemakers have all announced price holds for October.

UK wholesale markets were sluggish through August, although did firm slightly on the month. This follows a quiet GDT event, with the overall price index holding relatively steady at the latest event. Wholesale markets and market indicators can give an idea of how milk prices may move before they are formally announced by processors.
