35.9ppl record breaking price for Marks and Spencer’s aligned producers – from 1st September

Posted on: 01/10/21

An additional 1.203ppl on top of a previous 2.5ppl increase only one month earlier (applied from 1st July) takes producers standard liquid milk price to an all-time record of 35.9ppl beating the previous 2013 record of 34.84ppl.

The increase is the result of price increases in all five tracked farm inputs viz, feed, fuel, fertiliser, labour and sugar beet.  This price will prevail until 1st April 2022, unless further farmgate cost increases trigger another interim price rise as agreed under the M&S Price Pledge (source www.milkprices.com )
