NETHERLANDS - The FrieslandCampina guaranteed price for raw milk for June 2017 is €36.75 per 100 kilogrammes of milk. The guaranteed price increases by €0.75 compared to the guaranteed price for May (€36.00).

From 2017 the amounts shown apply to an average supply of 800,000 kilogrammes of milk annually (in previous years 600,000 kilogrammes).
