Prices for non-member suppliers to Arla Direct were cut to 19.25ppl for January.


This further cut in March prices was attributed to surplus milk supplies by the co-operative.


Farmers Guardian has spoken to farmers who have said the move will take them to about 16ppl.


Tenant Farmers Association (TFA) chief executive George Dunn took to twitter, calling the price fall a ’depressing move’.


It was deemed ’unbelievable’ by Cumbrian farmer Sandra Stalker.


The news came as Tesco confirmed it would be switching a volume of milk supply from Arla to Muller.


The volume was alleged by Farmers For Action leader David Handley to have been 200m litres and Mr Handley accused Tesco of ’decimating’ the liquid milk industry.
