Kilkenny farmers to benefit from Glanbia’s 2019 Trading Bonus Scheme
KILKENNY-based food giant Glanbia has announced details of its 2019 Trading Bonus Scheme.
The scheme will reward farmer members of the Co-op for purchases made from Glanbia Ireland and its subsidiaries.
For milk supplier members of Glanbia Co-op, the 2019 Trading Bonus is potentially worth up to 0.75 cent per litre (cpl) on all milk delivered in 2019.
For grain growers, a Trading Bonus of up to €10 per tonne of grain supplied is available for 2019.
Beef, sheep and pig farmer customers of Glanbia Ireland that are Glanbia Co-op members will also qualify for a Feed Bonus on their tonnes purchased this year.
The 2019 Feed Trading Bonus will be €10 per tonne on beef, dairy and sheep feed products purchased from Glanbia Ireland by non-milk suppliers, with €3 per tonne available to qualifying Co-op members on purchases of pig feed and straights.
In a change from the 2018 Trading Bonus Scheme, eligibility for feed bonus payments is confined to non-milk suppliers in 2019.
