Only when I arrived in Australia did I know that in this large animal husbandry country, milk can really be cheaper than water!
You can buy a bucket for 1 dollar! And the milk flavor is full, mellow and rich, the fat hanging on the cup is the most intuitive way to verify its quality!
However, due to the extreme weather of drought and flooding in recent years, Australia's dairy farmers can be said to have experienced roller coaster pain!
Only 50 heads of cattle were starved to death or drowned, which is terrible
In order to help dairy farmers tide over the difficulties and revive the livestock industry, the two supermarket giants Coles and Aldi announced,Increase the price of Coles Brand and Farmdale fresh milk by $0.1 per liter!
Coles has been paying the highest milk price to dairy processors for the past four years to avoid passing on this additional cost to customers.
However, this time, they chose to raise prices publicly, mainly because they hope to help the bewildered dairy farmers to the greatest extent!
Dairy farmers in Queensland state that an additional $0.1 per liter will be life-saving money for dairy farmers.Without this income, our future generations of children and grandchildren may not be able to drink fresh milk.
"My farm can produce 15 liters of milk every month, which means I can receive an extra 1.5 Australian dollars to feed my cows."
Last month, Coles also placed small boxes in front of the milk freezer, nicknamed it for collecting donations for dairy farmers, but the Federal Minister of Agriculture stated that if the supermarket paid a reasonable price, public donations would not be required.
Therefore, Dairy Connect, a dairy industry advocacy organization, responded to the comments of the Minister of Agriculture and immediately urged Coles and Aldi to change milk prices.
Woolworth adjusted its milk price as early as last month. This time Coles also raised the price of two liters of self-service brand milk to $2.2 and the price of three liters to $3.3.
So far, $1 milk officially bid farewell to the Australian market...
But in fact, as a consumer, Mr. Times would like to say that the increase of $0.1 per liter of milk is not a lot. If it can really help dairy farmers get out of trouble, this is the money that should be spent.
But if the supermarket takes the opportunity to make a sum of money for their own pockets without using the money on the blade, then people and gods will be angry!
