The latest MPI is 26.18 pence per litre.  The main driver has been the price of mild cheddar, despite UK stocks remaining tight.  MCVE (Milk for Cheese Value Equivalent) fell 9% in December, with UK cheese is under increasing pressure from falling EU cheese prices.  Mild Cheddar is reported down £265/tonne (8%) in December to an average £3,000/t.
