ZAGREB, 16 March 2022 - Dukat continues to increase the buy-up price of milk from its sub-contractors, which will go up by HRK 0.15 per litre as of 1 April and by an additional HRK 0.10 as of 1 May, the Zagreb-based dairy company stated on Wednesday.

In addition to the increases in the price for purchased milk in January and March, the aggregate rise will be HRK 0.50 per litre, Dukat's director Duško Glišić, said, according to a press release.

Dukat says it is aware of difficulties faced by small farms due to the higher input costs and disturbances on the global food market, and although it itself is under pressure from increasing input costs, it will do its utmost to help its sub-contractors in milk production.

Dukat noted that Croatia is not self-sufficient in primary milk production.

"We acknowledge the efforts by the government and the relevant ministry to help farmers, and we urge the authorities to make additional efforts to help preserve the primary milk production," Glišić was quoted as saying.

Dukat buys up milk in 15 counties and cooperates with 1,600 producers, half of whom are small milk farms.
