- All other Cheese pools plus Liquid & Cheese pools will increase by 2.00ppl
Chairman Clive Sharpe said, “We have continued confidence that our milk price will increase further during the first quarter of 2017. Since June, the average price increase across our main milk pools is over 8 ppl. These increases reflect both the improved market returns and the accelerating improvements in our own business.
