Tesco continues to pay dairy farmers a fair price for their milk
Tesco has today confirmed the new price it will pay its British dairy farmers for milk. Following the regular 6-monthly review of production costs, the new price Tesco will pay for milk from 1 May, will be 30.93ppl*.
Set up in 2007, the TSDG comprises around 600 farmers who supply Tesco directly with own-brand fresh and filtered milk products and share Tesco’s aim to deliver the best quality milk possible for customers. The TSDG pricing mechanism ensures that Tesco pays a price for the milk that is buys that reflects the cost of production to dairy farmers, helping them to invest and plan for the future.
The new price has been set using the independent consultancy-Promar- to make sure that price paid by Tesco reflects average cost of production of the TSDG group. That price is agreed in collaboration with farmers, then set for six months and is completely independent from the retail price for milk. Customers can be assured that every pint of own-brand milk they buy from Tesco supports a TSDG farmer, helping to deliver a sustainable future for the British dairy industry.
