Retailer supplements will be worth 1.621p/litre in September milk cheques for milk producers supplying Muller Wiseman.
This will apply for the 430 producers who are not aligned to a specific supermarket and relates to milk price commitments made by Lidl and Aldi in August.
Both retailers said that they would pay 28p/litre to processors for all liquid milk sold in their UK stores and that they expected this to be passed back to the farmgate.
The September supplement will be shown as a separate item in September milk cheques, due to land in producers’ bank accounts next week. It will mean a total payment of 23.971p/litre for September milk for these producers.
Muller Wiseman was the first to announce what the retailer commitments would mean, paying a 0.595p/litre retail supplement for the final two weeks of August.
The processor’s non-aligned liquid price remains at 22.35p/litre for November.
Muller Wiseman has a total of 1,200 milk suppliers.
