Dairy farmers supplying Muller on direct contracts and who meet the conditions of its Advantage programme will receive a farmgate milk price of 41.5p/litre from 1 June.

This marks a 1.5p/litre rise for a standard liquid litre of 4% butterfat and 3.3% protein and includes a 1p/litre Advantage payment, paid quarterly.
