Milk Link has announced it is increasing its milk price to members by 0.5ppl, taking it to 28.5ppl for its manufacturing and liquid suppliers.

The latest price increase would give a further much-needed boost to Milk Link members at a time when their dairy businesses were under considerable financial pressure, said Milk Link chief executive Neil Kennedy.

"We remain committed to paying a sustainable return to our members to reflect their financial commitment, hard work and dedication," he said.
