Kerry Group has held its base milk price for March supplies 29.41c/l excluding VAT.
A Kerry spokesperson said that based on average March milk solids, the price return inclusive of bonuses but excluding VAT is 31.63c/l.
It is the third processor to set a price for March supplies, following Glanbia and Lakeland announcements last week.
Glanbia will pay suppliers a milk price of 28.93c/l including a 0.47c/l bonus and excluding VAT for March. On Friday the board of Lakeland Dairies set a base milk price of 29.68c/l excluding VAT for March.
