What're the dates like on them? Not sure we can get through 12 pints in a week!

£1 for 4 pints everywhere.

12 pints is lot. Suppose I could make the family eat cereal for dinner and tea every night for a week. Heat added though. great find if you need that much milk!

Palwan you just beat me to it by seconds

Isn't that standard (ie 3 pints for a quid)?

Cheapest at the mo are Aldi & Iceland at 89p for 4 pints which is £2.67 for 12 pints (if you really need that quantity).

Not much point in Praising it being British milk, when the British Farmers are losing money on every pint.
By British Farmers I mean those with small to medium herds that actually work for a Living.
Not the Toffs on huge farms driving around in their Chelsea Tractors while sipping Pimms from Glass Slippers.

Iceland have it at 89p per 4 pints and plus it is £1 for 4 pints everywhere else ! ...cold for me sorry

The ones we just picked up are by 12th Jan

its a good deal for the consumer. but we are seeing to many dairy farmers closing down because of the supermarkets. and more and more poor quality imported milk coming from countries who dont care about the standard of the product or whats in it. guess we are heading for a another scandal like the horse meat

i make it 25p a pint

And you can just buy the 4pt - no need to fill the freezer.

You are having a laugh..

This is not a deal - All the supermarket are trying to do is make you buy their over stock.

mysupermarket.co.uk/asd…tml

£1 per 4pints at Asda, cheaper at Aldi or iceland per 4pints which may result in not over buying.

Also.. Morrison's sell 2 litre for £0.88p - Meadow Park Semi Skimmed Milk 2L

Scotmid are doing £1 for 4 pints and you can buy 2 of them for £1.50.

Morrisons - like most (if not all) UK supermarkets only sell British milk - though there's no such thing as 'poor quality' EU milk. Just cheap.

Very few farms have closed; a handful of hill farms which can't hope to be profitable. But most farms are owned by corporations, and already receive huge grants from the government AND the EU. If they have to sell a few range rovers, that's utterly tragic.

And it never pays to believe the Daily mail - they wouldn't know the truth if it bit them on the b**

This is what you call a 'loss leader' to get a few customers in. They pay the farmers the same, but lose their profit. And the farmer gets to sell more milk.

For me it is not about filling the freezer..agreed it's not a deal....it's always this price....Morrisons also sell 2ltrs for 88p(British milk)... it's easier to buy a few and freeze it as distance to the supermarket is a problem. It lasts well and still tastes the same.

Yeah just as they tell the dairy farmers the knocking the price they pay them for milk... It's pretty much not worth being a dairy farmer these days!

I agree in that very few farms have closed but lots no longer farm dairy. … I agree in that very few farms have closed but lots no longer farm dairy. My father was a third generation dairy farmer and he sold his dairy herd about 8 years ago as it was costing him more to produce the milk than he was getting paid for it. He now farms a beef herd. Where I live was mostly dairy herds now there is 3 small herds that I can think off compared to dozens 8/10 years ago, yet milk still continues to get cheaper.



And yet there appears to be no shortage of British milk...

Which is relevant to today's prices because............?

2.27Lt at ICELAND is for 89p why would I have to buy 3 for £3 and have and not use it by the sell by date.

Better to buy 1 and get it fresh!!

You are joking right. Why freeze them when its same price in other supermarket

Capitalism....at it's finest....profit before people
Supply and demand....farmers supply the supermarkets and supermarkets will always demand their price.
Profit and loss........... supermarkets take the most profit and farmers will continue to receive a loss.
Absolutely no sympathy for farmers.....they all went in with their eyes open... and got scr*wed

Banned

people are thick daft buying lots of milk bread shops only closed 1 day come on

nip over to Eastern Europe and try their milk. then tell me there's no such thing as poor quality.
our farmers are regulated what medicines and feed they can use. they are regulated on the medicines they administer to enhance the cow into producing more milk.
then there's the health and safety during the process upto bottling the milk. I've seen the workers. fag in the mouth leaning over the large vats. no cares about rodent infestation or cleaning the equipment.


your milk does not come out the cow and into a bottle. what you are drinking is a finished product. we don't breed pasteurised cows or semi skimmed cows.

just like the good old beef burger. using quality Irish beef

Nobody, but nobody is importing milk from Eastern Europe. a lot of milk is imported from the EU (mostly Netherlands, and not for supermarkets, but for puddings, chocolate etc), and EU standards are pretty much the same as the UK)

Sure, you can find cases where the rules have been ignored - just as UK meat companies ignored the rules on horsemeat.

Best to make food decisions on the facts, not xenophobia.

What's the joke? Skimmed or semiskimmed can be frozen and used later with zero deterioration. Freezing can be very useful at holiday time / extra guests, and not everyone has a Tesco on every corner and in every ex-pub.

No; I just prefer facts to prejudice. Call me old fashioned.
You obviously had several bangs on the head - not that it slowed you down at all. Already slow.
No sense, no feeling, eh?

guess you gonna have to wait for the facts to sink in. because the bang on the head hasn't worked. stay in cloud cuckoo till then.

Milk used to be £1 for 4 pints in Morrisons now it's £1.39 so where's the deal?
