Now Arla to slash milk price by 2p/litre

Arla’s non-aligned milk suppliers face a 2p/litre price cut from 1 August, taking the group’s standard litre price to 25p/litre.

Others supplying Arla are on Sainsbury’s and Tesco cost of production price models and an Asda premium contract which is based on the standard litre price plus a premium.
