Guaranteed price for January: 35.70 euros

7 January 2013

The FrieslandCampina guaranteed price for raw milk for January 2013 is 35.70 euros per 100 kilogrammes of milk. The guaranteed price for January is thus 1.20 euros below the level of the guaranteed price for December 2012 (36.90 euros).

The guaranteed price for January reflects the level of the estimated milk prices of the benchmark companies for the month of January. The guaranteed price for December was higher as a result of a positive correction of a previous estimate of the milk prices of the benchmark companies, which has been too low.

In January 2013, the fat price will rise to 3.77 euros per kilogramme, while the protein price will fall to 6.39 euros per kilogramme (December 2012: 3.66 euros and 6.86 euros respectively).
