First Milk Continues Price Progress

First Milk is increasing its standard litre manufacturing and liquid pool milk prices to 32.5ppl from the 1st of December 2013.

Over the last few months the First Milk company has delivered improved profits from its core business and diverted an increased proportion of its volume into skimmed milk powder to take advantage of attractive returns. All these actions have contributed to supporting the latest price increases.

In addition, as delegates heard at the company's annual conference, First Milk is also seeing significant progress from a focus on brand development, lifestyle nutrition, the out of home sector and exports.

First Milk's chairman Sir Jim Paice commented;
"I was extremely proud to be confirmed as chairman by members at the AGM in October. My ambition is to chair a business which ensures that First Milk members get the best return from the totality of their involvement and ownership of this business.

"If I am going to achieve this ambition it means that we need to build commercial partnerships, it means driving exports, it means always looking for added value, and most important of all it means constant liaison with members.

"We start a round of member meetings in Wales, and as I work my way around the country over the coming weeks, I hope to meet as many members as possible."
