Glanbia will pay its Member milk suppliers 32 cent per litre (cpl) including VAT for June
manufacturing milk supplies at 3.6% butterfat and 3.3% protein.
Glanbia Ireland (GI) will increase its base milk price for June by 2 cents to 31 cpl including VAT, for
manufacturing milk at 3.6% fat and 3.3% protein. In addition, Glanbia Co-op will make a drought
related support payment to Members of 1 cpl including VAT, for June manufacturing milk at 3.6% fat
and 3.3% protein.
The Glanbia Ireland base price and the Co-op support payment will be adjusted to reflect the actual
constituents of milk delivered by suppliers.
Martin Keane, Glanbia Chairman, said: “We are pleased to increase our milk price for the highest milk
volume month of the year. This reflects increased returns, particularly for butter. However, market
balance remains fragile, with the impact of trade wars and consumer resistance to higher retail prices
being two issues that need to be monitored very closely in the coming months”.
