Wiseman Dairies increases milk price

Robert Wiseman Dairies has become the latest milk processor to increase its price for farmer suppliers.

From 1 March, it will raise the farmgate price by 1p/litre to 25.72p/litre.

A statement said the move was in line with the company’s commitment to address concerns among farmers over the rising cost of milk production.

“For dairy farmers not aligned to major retailers, the increase reasserts Wiseman’s premium position relative to standard litre prices offered by major competitors in the fresh milk processing sector,” the firm said.

Last week First Milk announced an increase in the price it pays members in its three main milk pools from 1 February. This followed increases by Milk Link and Tesco the previous week.
