The milk price
Home / Our cooperative / Milk price
Our dairy farmers are independent entrepreneurs and depend on their dairy farms for their income. They supply all their milk to the cooperative, receiving a milk price in return that is set prior to each month. As a cooperative, we aim to offer our members the highest possible milk price, so that they can also keep investing in their dairy farms, which they often hand down from generation to generation.
The milk price we offer differs per dairy farmer and depends on such things as the fat and protein content of their supplied milk and on the surcharges the cooperative pays out. For instance, there are milk flows with special properties, such as meadow milk. Dairy farmers who supply this milk receive a surcharge.
