Aurivo announces price for June milk supplies

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

Aurivo will pay a 30.5c/L base price for June. The processor said that: “The pressure on returns is noted and current milk price does not reflect current returns, in particular due to lower butter prices in the market.”

This figure is the same as the offering for May supplies.

Aurivo becomes the latest processor to announce its June price, following on from the other announcements made last week.
