Dairy farmers who meet the conditions for the Müller Advantage programme, which aims to improve supply chain collaboration, herd health and reductions in environmental impact, will receive a milk price of 28.25p per litre from June 1, a 1ppl increase.

Müller said the revised milk price reflects strong demand for liquid milk products combined with lower spring milk volumes from farms due to recent colder weather.

Müller, which has operations in Shropshire at Market Drayton, Minsterley and Telford, added it recognises the challenges farms are facing with significantly higher feed costs as we head into summer.

Rob Hutchison, chief operating officer at Müller Milk & Ingredients, said: “Markets remain strong at present and if this is sustained, we hope to build on this increase in the months ahead, as we continually monitor supply and demand.”
