INCREASE IN PRICE OF JERSEY MILK

By Ruth Le Cocq

Shoppers can expect to pay more for Jersey milk as the wholesale price increased by five per cent this week equating to 7p per litre.

It is hoped the rise will help to ease the challenges faced by the Island’s farmers who need to continue to invest in their businesses to ensure a commercial future.

Jersey Dairy managing director Eamon Fenlon said both the dairy and farmers had worked ‘extremely hard to find efficiencies’ in the face of increased costs over the last year. He believes this price increase will flow through to the farmers to enable financial returns to move closer to the levels required to stimulate growth and continuance of the sector.

‘Sustainability of our farms is paramount to ensure an ongoing supply of fresh milk and the future of our iconic Jersey cow in its Island home,’ he said.

‘In addition to their environmental stewardship of our beautiful countryside, our farmers make a significant contribution to local food security with the wide range of products produced from the milk they supply to Jersey Dairy.’

Eamon explained that the dairy was also facing increases in packaging, utility and freight costs during 2024 which would affect operational costs.

‘Our price increase is half the latest Jersey RPI inflation figure. We hope our customers understand why we must do this and that they continue to support us,’ he said.
