Figures are collated by AHDB Dairy from many of the larger UK dairy companies and are then scaled to reflect 100% of deliveries using the latest Defra UK production figures. The UK figures were scaled on 5 September 2016 to use the provisional July figure of 1,162m litres as 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.

  • UK daily deliveries for the two weeks ending 17/09/2016 averaged 35.9m litres/day, 3.0m litres/day (7.7%) lower than the same period last year. Daily deliveries for this period were 1.6m (4.4%) lower compared with the 3-year average.
  • For the two weeks ending 17/09/2016, GB daily deliveries averaged 30.3m litres/day and were down 9.2% (3.0m litres/day) from the same period in the previous year. Daily deliveries for this period were 2.0m litres/day (6.1%) lower 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).
