Milk producers supplying Dairy Farmers of Britain received good news for the second month after the dairy announced a milk price increase for July.

The co-op, which was the last of the milk buyers to lift its prices two weeks ago (June 13), increased the price it pays for conventional and organic milk by 0.25p/litre.

Channel Island milk suppliers will see their price rise by 0.50p/litre.

Andrew Cooksey, Dairy Farmers of Britain chief executive, said:  “These price rises have been made possible as a result of continuing improvements in our trading position”.

The increases will take effect from July 1.
