The article reports on milk contracts being offered by Marks & Spencer (M&S). The company increased its milk price by 0.77 pound per litre in January 2007. Robert Cumine, agriculture manager of M&S, considered milk price as one of the factors that prevent more buyers from starting a direct pool of Dairy Crest Direct members. The development of any milk contract has to involve all parties form the beginning in order to be successful.
