Fonterra increased its farmgate milk price [News Oceania n°11/2018]

Period: May 14 – 25, 2018 April 2018 milk production in Australia is +4.5% from April 2017. July 2017-April 2018 milk production is +3.5% over one year earlier. A study on the performance of the Australian dairy industry, conducted by the ACCC (Australian Competition & Consumer Commission), revealed imbalances at each level of the dairy supply chain, in particular a strong bargaining power imbalance and information asymmetry in farmer-processor relationships. The ACCC therefore recommends that the Australian Government introduces a mandatory code of conduct to apply to dairy processors. In New Zealand the farming conditions improved and contributed to April 2018 milk production being +2.9% from April last year. June 2017-April 2018 milk production in New Zealand is -0.1% over one year earlier. New Zealand’s Fonterra increased its farmgate milk price forecast for the 2017-18 season by 0.20 NZD to 6.75 NZD/kgMS. Converted into milk, the price is 29.67 €/100 kg of milk fat and 3.4% protein mass/mass (ref. Germany, current change of reference: 1 NZD = 0.5940 €). Fonterra announced an opening forecast farmgate milk price for the coming 2018-19 season of 7.00 NZD/kgMS and expects a milk collection +1.5% than the current forecast for the season about to
