dairy pricing trends

Pricing trends for the new year.

Dairy Ingredient prices have started the year on firm footing. While it’s impossible to know for certain where prices will go this year, it appears that they will be higher than 2016. We are expecting mix prices to reflect ingredient prices and, at least for the first half of the year, be higher. Weather and the international dairy situation will influence prices as we get into the summer months. Our advice, as your season begins, is to review your menu prices and make the necessary adjustments so as not to be unpleasantly surprised as the ice cream season unfolds.
