The new 'Arla direct' contract features liquid and compositional variations, a volume bonus for larger producers, seasonality options and a 12 month notice period – with the three month trigger as specified by the code.

This new contract has been launched as part of Arla's recruitment drive to secure an additional 5000 million litres of milk in the UK and is being offered at a standard litre price of 30.02p per litre.
