MEDIA STATEMENT FROM CRAIG GARVIN, CEO, PARMALAT AUSTRALIA

In the last few week’s dairy farmers in Victoria, Southern NSW, Tasmania and some in South Australia have been confronted with dramatic late season reductions in milk prices for the 2015/16 year with significant price cuts in May and June.

 

Parmalat Australia would like to make clear to its customers, consumers and even its own farmers that these 2015/16 price changes do not impact Parmalat farmers in the affected regions. Parmalat’s farm gate milk prices for 2015/16 season in the southern regions are fixed, remain unchanged and are considerably higher than the revised prices advised by the region’s two largest processors. This applies across the country.
