Why you should stop buying arla dairy
- by admin
Dairy farmers are warning that consumers will be paying a high price for arla cheese in their products this summer, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) will be taking action.
Dairy farmers are concerned that arla cheeses are going to be priced so high that they will not be able to keep up with demand, and that consumers won’t be able afford it.
Dairy farmers and retailers are currently competing with each other for the market share of arla, which is sold in all the major food processing companies in the U, but this summer is expected to be different.
The USDA will issue a rule soon that will limit the price arla will be sold at and will require farmers to replace arla with a less expensive alternative, if they are not able to buy a higher-quality cheese that costs less.
“This is the first time in over 20 years that we’ve been able to get a price freeze on this product,” said Dave Hock, CEO of the American Dairy Association.
Hock said arla farmers have already had to switch to cheaper alternatives to satisfy demand.
But the price of arloascheese is now being raised so much that it will be hard for farmers to keep pace.
“If the price goes up and you can’t make up the difference, you have to make that switch,” Hock said.
“Arla has been the only cheese we sell at a high cost in the marketplace.
Now that it is being priced higher, there’s no way we’re going to sell it at the price that we want it at,” said Tom McCollum, a dairy farmer in California.
“We’ve been selling it at a much higher price than we ever had before, and we’ve got to go to a competitor that has a better product,” he said.
A dairy farmer’s views on the price freezeThe dairy industry has had to take some steps to fight the price hike, including:The price freeze was issued on July 15, 2018, which means that farmers and producers will have to buy their products at the same price regardless of what the USDA is doing.
The price of dairy products is currently set by the USDA, but the price is set by different agencies, such as the Department of Commerce, the National Milk Producers Federation, and other food service and food industry entities.
The price of the product is set annually.
The dairy price freeze will have no impact on farmers, processors, and retailers, but farmers say it is a blow to them.
“This will affect the ability of farmers to sell at the high cost that we have had for years and the ability for consumers to purchase the cheese that they want,” said McColl.
McCollum said the price increase has been so steep, farmers will not have enough milk for the cows that they have been growing for years.
McColl and other dairy farmers are worried that arloa will be unavailable for purchase at the higher prices they are paying for.
“You’re going back to a point where you’re only going to have one or two people on your farm to get the product that you need,” McColl said.
“It will be like a ghost town in the springtime, where you don’t know who’s there, what’s going on, and who’s coming in.
We can’t keep our farms running at the rate that we are.”
The price for farmers is set in increments, with farmers paying for their cheese at a certain amount in a particular year, and then it is set a year later.
Dairy processors are already paying farmers higher prices for the cheese because it is cheaper to produce.
