Lakeland Milk Price Increase Welcome – ICMSA.

The Chairperson of ICMSA’s Dairy Committee, Mr. Gerald Quain, has welcome the decision of Lakeland Dairies to increase its milk price to 30 cents per litre which is in line with market returns.   The reality is that dairy markets have recovered from the Covid-19 shock and the minimum milk price that any Co-op should be paying for June milk is 30 cents per litre and this is the benchmark on which all milk processors will be judged.

With other Co-ops due to set their milk price in the coming days, Mr. Quain said, that serious question will be asked of any processor who does not come up to the 30 cents per litre benchmark as anything below this will be the processor holding back on their suppliers who took the full brunt of Covid-19.
