Yes, it is only a 10p saving.

Tesco, Asda, Aldi have increased the price of 4 pints of store brand milk to £1.09 but Iceland is the only (as far as I know) one still selling for 99p

No such thing as a poor farmer. "There's no money in cows" explain why you have 2000 cows... "There's no money in sheep" explain the 1500 sheep you own...

Both dairy farms and supermarkets are commercial enterprises run for profit.

Not in my local Lidl it's £1.09
Still £1 at one stop shops. Which is a Tesco company. Didn't even realise the price of milk had gone up.
I drink raw milk these days, amazing stuff.

That's 2 litres.

4 pints = 2.27 litres.

You are paying £1 for less than 4 pints.

Coop were doing 2 for £2 - anyone know if this is still the case?

Couple of the big processors of milk have recently said they'll be cutting the price due to increased volumes from January.

Worth pointing out that supermarkets tend not to buy from farmers, they buy from the milk processors (Arla, Dairy Crest, Muller etc) who collect the milk from the farmers, so it is the processors that are mostly controlling the price farmers get paid.
WHAT !!! they increase 10p ? tho i always get milk from iceland
Current price that farmers get paid is 30p a litre. Supermarkets make all the profit
Sure Lidl's has gone up?

*cant find receipt*
Yeh bought some from Lidl today and it was £1.09 for 4pints of red top

Yes it is purchased today
Jeez, surely 10p doesn't matter to anybody, does it?

Sorry if I'm being a snob, but I just can't compute why it would matter if milk was 99p or £1.09.

£0.025 per pint.

Absolutely agree, as they drive round in their multi-thousand pound tractors and megabucks Land or Range-Rovers lol! If there's nowt in it, they need to learn to diversify into something that makes a profit..... wonder why they don't?

This is a deals site. A 10% difference in price might matter to some people. If you buy lots of milk then the savings could add up.
Thanks

Your maths is awful
They have increased it by a straight 10%, that's a massive increase, so if they were making £100 millions, now they will make £110 millions. It will have a knock on affect on inflation and everything that is linked with milk eg yoghurt, milk shake, dairy chocolates, baby milk powder, etc that all will try to push the price up by 10% eg baby milk powder is £10, can move to £11- now that's a big increase for some parents.
And also it's 25p per pint (£0.25), not £0.025 (2.5p per pint)

Yep - bought 2 pints for £2.00 at my local Co-op a few days back
Always feel that Lidl milk (and cream actually) tastes more sour than others. I've even bought a couple of creams on separate occasions that have been rancid. In fact I find it a bit of a gamble buying fresh produce at Lidl in general.

Based on visits to my local store it's probably because they leave chilled and frozen stock lying out on the shop floor for ages before putting it away.

I'd never buy milk or cream from there now.

I’m no Rachel Riley, but I’m sure 10p divided by 4 is 2.5p.

On the other hand, £1.09 divided by 4 isn’t 25p, so not sure which route you were taking with your advanced mathematics?

Also, are you sure that Muller, Cadbury’s and Cow and Gate all buy their milk from Asda? Maybe they are clever enough to pop over to their local Iceland

I was wondering why the price of milk has gone up, anybody know? It's not imported so not related to the fall in sterling, is it indirectly due to increase in fuel? To those saying it is insignificant, I disagree. In the last few months many of the cheaper items have had huge price increases e.g. Tesco everday value fish fingers went from 60p to 75p, many Ikea products under 1.50 have increased by at least 25p. Price increases are rarely less than 5 pence which can granslate yo a big percentage increase and very significant if it's a frequent purchase, it all adds up.

I think that's your local Lidl's problem.
I usually buy their double and single cream, cheese, butter, recently bought several 4-pint bottles of milk (£1.09 now!) - no single issue. Their dairy products are one of the best, especially given the price paid (I compare to similar non-premium Morrisons, Sainsbury's, Tesco, Asda products here).

To be honest this is a very ignorant comment. Not that most people will see it that way, unfortunately unless it affects people they will turn a blind eye.

A lot of farmers are very poor. A lot of small Dairy farms having been going under, unless they only sell locally for a fair price.

Yes some farmers are historically well off but you can guarantee they are the ones that have inherited vast amounts of land. A lot I know actually make money off of renting or selling their land. For example a farmer I know makes around 20k profit off of the farm and actually makes most of their income from owning houses. Another using their land to run a carboot to make money.

Their is more money in sheep then dairy but even then, the price at market can range from £40 for a 40lbs Lamb to £80 for the same weight depending on the sale. If they sell for a low price that's your whole profit gone.

Farming is a tough life, I never get why people bash them so much. I guess they are the ones that have never set foot on a farm.... sigh

Porkies? State you bases for that claim? Please tell me how you know all farmers are money Rich?

ALso guess who are the ones affected by brexit the most...... Farmers.. some farmers are only profiliable because of the EU subsidices. But do people factor in that, of couse not as it doesnt help thier false argument..

I personally know two farmers this year that have decided to rent their land and let someone else farm it as for them it wasn't worth the low profit yield.

A Farming collage in Northampton has had to drop its Dairy for the students as it was leaking money due to the low milk price. If you cant afford to own thousands of dairy cows there isn't any profit. They had to concentrate on ares that make money like Rape and barley. Even then tolerances are low if you have a bad year for yield.

The basis is your mate makes £20k profit from the farm yet "most" of his income (half would be another £20k but most would suggest its £30k+) comes from renting out his multiple house portfolio. Yeah he sounds like a poor farmer to me. I think we should bet Bono and the lads together to raise a few quid for this poor bloke so that he can eat this xmas.
