Why Join CMP?
We do things differently at CMP and hence all contracts between us and the individual farmer are bespoke and tailored to that farmer’s needs.
We do not agree with the “one size fits all” standard approach that exists in the dairy trade at present whereby farmers receive the same milk price adjusted for volume, fat, proteins etc.
We respect that all farmers are different. Some are tenants and some are landowners. Hence farmers’ attitudes to risk and the desire to work the markets to their own benefit differ.
We offer farmers exposure to the dairy markets that accords with their attitude to risk.
We can offer farmers fixed priced contracts, contracts that track indices such as AMPE, contracts that track futures prices on the EEX exchange and contracts that allow milk to be sold spot for when milk demands and prices are at their strongest.
We allow farmers to become the setters of their milk price not be the price takers. As such farmers who work with us can budget, can plan their expansions and can decide to invest with certainty.
We can, by working together with farmers, take the volatility out of the milk price. This is essential given what has happened in the last few years with the removal of quotas and with further turmoil to come through from the Brexit repercussions and potential loss of the other support mechanisms the EU has brought to the dairy industry.
Grow with us
Whilst we’re proud to have retained our family-feel, we’ve grown large enough to guarantee operational and service excellence too. Along with our commitment to continued investment, we want our partners to succeed as well. Our farmers really are part of our extended family.
