As of July 5, purchase prices for raw milk of Extra and Higher Grades have not changed since the monitoring was carried out in the first and second half of June. Only Grade I became cheaper compared to the beginning of June. Prices have stabilized, as the production of raw milk in Ukraine and its processing have reached a balance. The reduction in milk production was influenced by the limited demand for dairy products on the domestic and export markets, as well as the seasonal factor, — reports the analyst of the Association of Milk Producers, Georgy Kukhaleishvili.
The average purchase price of Extra Grade milk was 11.55 UAH/kg without VAT. The price range for this grade in farms varies from 10.50 to 12.20 UAH/kg without VAT and remained at the same level as in the first half of June.
Higher Grade costs 11.55 UAH/kg on average without VAT. Prices for Higher Grade milk range from 10.00 to 12.00 UAH/kg without VAT. The price range has not changed since the first half of June.
The average price of Grade I milk amounted to 11.07 UAH/kg without VAT and decreased by 0.06 UAH over the last month. The minimum price in farms was 9.50 UAH/kg and remained at the same level as at the beginning of June. The maximum price for Grade I was 10.40 UAH/kg, which is 1.03 UAH less than a month ago.
Accordingly, the weighted average price of three grades amounted to 11.39 UAH/kg without VAT and decreased by 0.02 UAH.
