Synlait Milk raises forecast milk price for FY2014 season
Continuing high international commodity prices have seen Synlait Milk increase its forecast milk price for the FY2014
season from $7.00 per kgMS to $8.00 per kgMS.
The Company also lifted its advance rates for the season effective from August paid September from $4.50 per kgMS to
$5.00 per kgMS.
Synlait Milk announced last week that it will process more milk than forecast this season following a decision to take a
significant allocation of DIRA milk that will increase total production volumes of its ingredients products.
Synlait Milk Managing Director John Penno says the Company remains confident in achieving its forecast financial result
“Higher than forecast revenue from high commodity prices and additional processing volumes mean we remain confident of
achieving our FY2014 earnings targets at these increased milk prices.”
