• Direct Milk DPO again continues to welcome the combined retail supplementary payment to be paid within milk statements for July (issued August), this month decreasing by -0.153p/l to +2.894p/litre. This payment will be applied to all litres supplied during July via standard contracts (not Formula or Specialist Pools).

    The amount paid via the retailer supplements varies each month dependent on the volumes of milk supplied by members vs.  sales to the three retailers concerned, the July payment will be the first to have recorded a month on month decrease since the supplementary payments commenced via October 2015 milk supplies.

    July standard liquid milk price paid to Direct Milk DPO members: @ 18.00p/l (milkprices.com) + retail supplement +2.894p/l = an effective milk price of 20.894p/l.

    Direct Milk DPO continues to express it’s very grateful thanks to retailers Aldi, Lidl and Morrisons who provide this extremely valuable support to our farmer members.
