Higher price for cheese

This article was originally published in Foodnews

UK SUPERMARKET chain Asda has agreed to pay an extra UK£300/ tonne for cheese, following a deal concluded with First Milk, the largest farmer-owned co-operative in the UK. Each tonne of cheese requires 10 000 litres of milk and wholesale cheese prices on the market are expected to rise from the current level of UK£2 500-2 800/tonne. Last year's UK liquid milk production was the lowest for 37 years and output looks likely to fall again in 2008-09.
