UK Daily Milk Deliveries

Published 28 August 15

Note: Figures are collated by AHDB Dairy from many of the larger UK dairy companies and are then scaled to reflect 100% of deliveries. The UK figures were scaled on 3 August 2015 to use the provisional June figure of 1,290 million litres reported by Defra.   

Please note the UK daily delivery figures are now re-weighted approximately one month in arrears due to a change in source of the data. 

This data is planned to be re-weighted w/e 4 September when both the UK and NI July milk volume figures are scheduled to be available from Defra and DARD. 

  • UK daily deliveries for the two weeks ending 22/08/2015 averaged 39.0m litres/day, 1.1m litres/day (2.8%) higher than the same period last year. Daily deliveries for this period were 2.8m (7.8%) higher compared with the 3-year average.
  • For the two weeks ending 22/08/2015, GB daily deliveries averaged 32.9m litres/day and were up 1.9% (0.6m litres/day) from the same period in the previous year. Daily deliveries for this period were 2.1m litres/day (6.7%) higher compared with the 3-year average.

UK daily deliveries may be slightly under-stated at certain times of the month due to minor and temporary sampling issues. For more detail, please contact Patty Clayton (02476 478701).
