Guaranteed price for October: 42.25 euros

7 October 2013

The FrieslandCampina guaranteed price for raw milk for October 2013 amounts to 42.25 euros per 100 kilogrammes of milk. The guaranteed price for October is therefore 0.75 euros higher than the level for September (41.50 euros).

The increase in the guaranteed price is due to the reference companies’ anticipated higher milk prices as a result of further price increases, particularly for cheese and milk products in Germany. The protein price rises in October to 7.03 euros per kilogramme (September 2013: 6.90 euros). The fat price rises to 4.76 euros per kilogramme (September 2013: 4.71).

The guaranteed price applies for 100 kilogrammes of milk with a fat content of 4.41% and a protein content of 3.47% and is exclusive of VAT.
