Meadow Foods cancels August 2012 milk price cut

Meadow Foods has announced it will not be reducing its price for 1st August 2012. Meadow still has to complete discussions with some of its customers, but following positive talks it has decided to go ahead with this announcement.

Simon Chantler, Meadow Foods Executive Chairman, said: “Going forward we will continue negotiations and are determined to further improve the current situation. Following what has been a very difficult couple of weeks for all concerned in the dairy industry, it still remains a critical time for the UK dairy industry as a whole, as we still have to find a solution for the longer term and parts of the market are yet to pass back money for the August cut. Let us hope that the moves we have seen in the last few days is a turning point.”

The business is dedicated to supplying dairy based ingredients to food manufacturers in the UK & Europe.
