The price of milk in Guernsey is to go up by 3p per litre, according to the Commerce and Employment Department.

This is the second year in a row there has been a 3p increase which officials say is in line with retail price index changes.

Skimmed, semi-skimmed and full cream milk will go up to £1.11p per litre with half litre packets to be priced at 63p.

Commerce and Employment said the change would start from 6 October.

It will be the fourth increase in the price of milk since 2010 when a litre broke the £1 barrier for the first time.

Commerce and Employment Minister Kevin Stewart said: "The [Milk Price] Panel has aimed to balance the wish to contain price rises for consumers and ensure that the industry has sufficient funding to remain viable."
