The author comments on the bog-standard milk price from Arla UK in Great Britain. He claims that any member will be asked to contribute 0.5p/litre for several years to Milk Partnership Limited (MPL) which administers a loan note held in Arla. He believes the MPL loan note fiasco continues because Arla wanted farmers to show their commitment to the company by investing in it. He stresses the need for Arla to show commitment to their farmers by paying them a competitive price.
