This is an increase of 5% on the 2018/19 price.
This opening milk price of $9.30 per Kg Milk Solids is before the deduction of industry levies and assumes the supply of ‘Premium’ quality milk as defined in the Tatura Handbook. This is a flat price across all months.
For suppliers currently transitioning to organic milk supply, Bega will now pay an organic feed supplement of $0.50 per Kg Milk Solids for the full 12 months of the ‘In Conversion’ period commencing 1 July 2019.
Bega Cheese will continue the ‘Bega Supply Premium’ offer of $0.50 per Kg Milk Solids for a three year supply period agreement for new suppliers and existing suppliers who have yet to take up the offer.
Bega Cheese remains committed to supporting our organic suppliers with competitive milk pricing and access to information and technical support.
