FMP is the difference between the EU AMPE and the EU FMPE, where FMPE is the Future Milk Price Equivalent 4 months in advance.

FMPE is calculated in the same way as AMPE but using settled futures prices from the European Energy Exchange. AHDB focuses FMPE 4 months in advance as this is normally the period where most trade is completed.

Both AMPE and FMPE are quoted in Euros to limit exchange rate impacts.
