The FrieslandCampina guaranteed price for raw milk for January 2015 is 30.25 euros per 100 kilogrammes of milk. The guaranteed price is 0.50 euros lower than in December 2014 (30.75 euros).
The reduction of the guaranteed price is the consequence of a lower forecast for the milk prices of the reference companies in January. Global milk supply remains high because of favourable weather and production conditions. On the other hand, the demand for dairy stagnates.
The protein price in January 2015 is 493.80 euros, the fat price is 246.90 euros and the lactose price is 49.38 euros per 100 kilogrammes.
