Record forecast Milk Price great news for Fonterra Farmers

Fonterra Shareholders’ Council Chairman, Ian Brown said today’s record 2013/14 forecast Farmgate Milk Price of $8.65 per kg/MS was great news for Fonterra’s 10,500 Farmers.

Mr Brown said the announced 35 cents per kg/MS increase to the Farmgate Milk Price and the 25 cents per kg/MS increase in the advance rate schedule of payments to Farmers is a demonstration of the tangible benefits Farmers gain from Fonterra’s position in the global market.

Ian Brown:  “Fonterra Farmers should feel really positive about today’s record announcement and the manner in which the Co-op has taken advantage of its strong position and seized its opportunities.

“The forecast payout and advance rate will provide our Farmers with added flexibility and enable them to move forward with continued confidence.

“Given the volatility of the market, I urge Farmers to continue to show prudence in their financial planning.”
