Dairygold follows lead of other processors by increasing price.

Dairygold have joined other Irish processors by increasing the price for milk from suppliers by One Cent for the month of May.

This means they now pay a price of 32.5 cents per litre (including VAT).

The news comes following similar announcements made by other processors last week.

Last week Glanbia, and Lakeland dairies also increased their milk prices, also by 1 cent per litre.

The news has met its fair share of criticism throughout the industry as leading officials claim data suggest that prices of 33cents per litre are more than feasible for processors.

Aurivo also announced their May milk prices, again following suit with an increase of only 1 cent per litre for its suppliers, to 32c/l (including VAT).

Arrabawn Co-op were another to announce a price increase, though they also gave an increase of 1 cent p/l for May milk. Their prices start at a base of 32.75 c/litre (Including VAT).


Their most recent increase prior to this was back in January.

Kerry also revealed that it will be increasing its base price to 32c/L (including VAT). They say this milk price is based on milk supplied at 3.3% protein and 3.6% fat.

Kerry prices, prior to this, held steady at 31c/litre.
