Six of the prices in the latest monthly league table are above 19p/l, with a top of almost 19.6p/l paid for July supplies to Glanbia Milk and Fivemiletown Co-op. These prices from Glanbia Milk do not include a top-up payable to any supplier who is a full member of the Glanbia Co-operative Society, which is understood to be 2c/l.

Interestingly, all of the base prices set for July 2016 are exactly 0.25p/l below those of July 2015 apart from that of Dale Farm, which is down by 0.45p/l. That’s despite Dale Farm’s increase of 1.5p/l over its June 2016 base price, the biggest of the local price lifts this month.
