Our strategy is to invest to add value, displace imported dairy products and export products made in the UK with British milk. As a result, we’ve invested millions in state-of-the-art infrastructure and dairies to grow our business and we’re challenging convention and how the British dairy industry has done things in the past. We look to work in partnership with farmers who share our ambition for the future and want to be the best long-term home for the milk they produce. That means simple, flexible contracts with a market leading ‘clean’ milk price at their core.
As a result of the purchase of Dairy Crest’s dairy operations at the end of 2015 we will be operating a number of milk pricing options initially. We will look to harmonise these after listening to our farmers and through consultation with their representative bodies. More news will be available in February & March 2016.
Our current Purchase Agreements and the Terms and Conditions spell out in detail our commitment, including two pricing options available each year for our non-aligned members – a Standard Option and a Formula Option.
