Friesland Campina March farmgate price adjusted upwards

Published 4 March 15

Milk prices paid to members of the Dutch cooperative Friesland Campina (FC) have been increased for the second month running. The cooperative has increased its guaranteed milk price for March to €34.00/100 kilograms of milk, up €2.50/100kg from the previous month.

A large part of the price increase is due to an underestimation of its January price, resulting in a correction of €1.75/100kg. A further increase of €0.75/100kg is based on expectations of higher milk prices paid by those dairies used as reference companies.
