The board of Aurivo has set its milk price for supplies in July, which was announced today, Friday, August 16.

Aurivo will pay a base price of 30.0c/L for July milk. A statement from the cooperative said the price is “based on the evolving market situation”.

This figure is 0.5c/L below the milk price paid for June supplies.
