Guaranteed Price for May: 40.25 euros

5 May 2014

The FrieslandCampina guaranteed price for raw milk for May 2014 is 40.25 euros per 100 kilogrammes of milk. The guaranteed price is 1.00 euro below the level of April 2014 (41.25 euros).

The drop in the guaranteed price is the result of the expected lower milk prices of the benchmark companies as a result of lower prices for milk powder, butter and cheese, partly due to the high milk supplies in Western Europe.

The protein price in May is 657.04 euros, the fat price is 328.52 euros and the lactose price is 65.70 euros per 100 kilogrammes.
