Aurivo, Dairygold and Arrabawn reveal November milk prices

This follows on from similar decisions made by other processors in recent days.

Dairygold also announced its decision to hold its price for November milk supplies.

As a result, Dairygold suppliers will receive a milk price of 36c/L – which includes a 0.5c/L quality bonus and VAT.

Meanwhile, Arrabawn has also held its milk price at 37c/L including VAT.

Yesterday, Kerry revealed it was going to hold its milk price for the third month in a row – meaning its suppliers will receive a base price of 36c/L including VAT for November milk.

This also represents Glanbia Ireland’s third consecutive month to hold its milk price.
