March guaranteed price of 34.25 euros

5 March 2012


The FrieslandCampina guaranteed price for raw milk for March 2012 is 34.25 euros per 100 kilogrammes of milk. This means that the March guaranteed price is 1.50 euros below the guaranteed price for February 2012 (35.75 euros).

The fall in the guaranteed price is the result of the declining trend in milk prices and an overestimation of the milk prices of the benchmark companies in January 2012. The fat price in March 2012 is 3.74 euros per kilogrammes and the protein price is 6.02 euros per kilogrammes (February 2012: 3.88 euros and 6.27 euros respectively).
The guaranteed price applies to 100 kilogrammes of milk with a fat content of 4.41% and a protein content of 3.47% and is exclusive of VAT.
