Kerry Failing to Live up to Their Promise on Leading Milk Price

IFA Dairy Chair Stephen Arthur has called on Kerry Agribusiness to close the widening gap in milk price between them and other dairy processors.

“An average Kerry milk supplier, milking 90 cows, received about €2,000 less for their May milk when compared with other milk processors. For many Kerry milk suppliers this is below their cost of production given the massive cost increases and the difficult spring weather they have endured,” he said.

He said Kerry is now lagging significantly on milk price compared to other processors. This needs to be rectified immediately if Kerry is going to live up to their promise to pay the leading milk price on a like for like basis.

“We are calling on Kerry Agribusiness to commit to addressing this widening gap with a significant supplemental payment in the June milk payments.”
