As from 1 October 2016, FrieslandCampina has announced it will pay its member dairy farmers 10 euro cents per not-produced kilo of milk for a period of six months. This measure comes on top of the recently announced European incentive for reducing milk production. FrieslandCampina said it intends to accelerate the reduction of phosphate production at the member dairy farms in anticipation of the announced Dutch phosphate production rights. Apart from this, the intended reduction will improve the opportunities for milk valorisation, the company said.FrieslandCampina says it is aiming at a reduction of a total of 150 million kilos of milk in the period from 1 October 2016 up to 31 March 2017, making a contribution to an accelerated reduction of phosphate production and so supporting sustainable dairy farming. The company is making available a total of €15 million for member dairy farmers who produce less milk, which equates to 10 euro cents for each not-supplied kilo of milk. This amount will be paid on top of the milk reduction premium of 14 euro cents paid by the European Union for each kilo of not-produced milk to dairy farmers.
