Tesco cheese supplements confirmed for suppliers

Published 13 October 15

First Milk and South Caernarfon Creameries (SCC) have confirmed the amount of supplementary payments to be received from Tesco.

Farmers supplying First Milk into Haverfordwest will receive a flat 1.54ppl paid on all A litres from September.

For SCC, the supplement has been fixed at 2.5ppl for the three months from September to November. While Tesco has agreed to pay the supplement over the winter period (31 Aug 15 – 28 Feb 16), SCC’s contract to supply cheese to Tesco finishes at the end of the year. The company will therefore adjust the December supplement to balance the actual payments received from Tesco over the full four months.
