Tesco extends winter cheese supplement

Published 16 February 16

Tesco has announced it will continue to pay its cost of production price for milk used in its own-label cheese until 17 April 2016. The retailer had originally agreed to pay this price as a temporary winter supplement until 28 February 2016. The supplement goes to farmers supplying First Milk’s Haverfordwest plant.

Tesco is also due to start using 100% British milk in its own-label standard yoghurts from 1 March 2016, as announced last summer.
