April guaranteed price of 33.75 euros

2 April 2012


The FrieslandCampina guaranteed price for raw milk for April 2012 is 33.75 euros per 100 kilogrammes of milk. This means that the April guaranteed price is consequently 0.50 euros below the guaranteed price for March 2012 (34.25 euros).

 

The lower guaranteed price is the result of the milk prices of the reference companies, which are expected to be somewhat lower, and an overestimation of the milk prices of the reference companies in February 2012. The fall in the milk prices is the result of lower quotations for various dairy products. The revenue prices for fat, in particular, are under pressure. The fat price for April 2012 falls to 3.43 euros per kilogramme (March 2012: 3.74 euros), while the protein price rises to 6.27 euros per kilogramme (March 2012: 6.02 euros).
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.
