The price of milk is on the rise, and retailers may be paying more to their suppliers than they should, anywhere from 10 cents to 25 cents a gallon more, according to Gorey Durling of Lebanon, New Jersey-based Dairy Technomics, a company providing customers with cost-plus price information programs and formulas for dairy products. "Dairy Tech helps chain customers renegotiate a tower cost with dairy supplier agreements for increased sales and higher gross margins," said Durling. The company assists in negotiating prices, provides "point sheets" to help convenience store chains identify their target price points with dairy providers and locates the best service provider.
