Aldi and Lidl fresh filtered milk (produced by the Cravendale people) now just 99p for 2 litres

Found 9th Apr 2016
Forget the high prices charged by the big supermarkets for filtered milk.

Aldi and Lidl both now sell pasteurised, homogenised, fresh filtered milk (produced by Arla Foods, makers of Cravendale) now down to 99p for 2 litres.

2 litres of Cravendale at Tesco - £1.90 (2 for £3)
2 litres of Cravendale at ASDA - £1.80 (2 for £3)
2 litres of Cravendale at Morrisons - £1.90 (2 for £3)
2 litres of Cravendale at Ocado - £1.90 (2 for £3)
2 litres of Cravendale at Waitrose - £1.90 (2 for £2.50)
2 litres of Cravendale at Iceland - £1.50
2 litres of Cravendale at Sainsbury's - £1.75

2 litres of Aldi Fresh Filtered Milk - now 99p
Same price at Lidl too

Exactly the same as Cravendale - a very long use-by date, and keeps for 7 days after opening.

​zzzzzzzzzzzzzz, don't give up your day job.
Sounds good. Thanks for posting.
Asda and Tesco 'own brand' filtered milk is £1.25 per 2 litre bottle.
Obviously Aldi and Lidl's is cheaper, but maybe a better price comparison?

As much as I admire what Aldi and Lidl have done for 'forcing' down prices, I hate to see Aldi's price saving promotions based on their own brand against top branded items.
Much more honest to compare own brand against own brand (not necessarily budget end).

Rant over. lol

Voted hot and watching to see how the major supermarkets act.
Lidl's has always been 99p in my local one.
So is filtered milk just for longer life?
bought this last wk, very nice
Thanks
Does this mean the farmers get even less money?

Does this mean the farmers get even less money?



​it does. the way price of milk is going, the UK will have to import milk to meet demands as it will and is putting UK dairy farms out of business.
Whilst we all want to save money, which is why we look at this site, every time I see things like milk reduced to a really low price, I wonder a) how much money the farmer gets (without government subsidies) b) if costs were cut regarding the welfare of the animals in order to get prices lower.
You cannot keep squeezing prices lower and lower then expect all the costs like wages, animal feed, veterinary bills etc to also get lower - vets won't take a pay cut, so the savings are probably being made with farmworker's salaries/living conditions, and also the animal's welfare.
I don't go along with the tree-hugging veggie stuff, but now and then we ought to think about more than just saving a few pence.
Asda's 99p for 4 pints I thought - and has been for a LONG time

Uk has imported millions of litres every year for a long time.
Milk is often sold in supermarkets as a 'loss leader'. The price is reduced by the supermarkets. sometimes to under what the supermarkets pay for it, just to entice customers in, with the farmer still getting what the agreed price was, irrespective of the price charged to the customer.

Some farmers aren't poor because they have diversified, it's these farmers that have simply just dropped dairy farming all together and keep going where the money is.

There are other farmers that have been dairy farmers for generations and their cows are all they have in the way of income and don't have enough land to diversify or at least to the same scale as others and these people are really suffering, they commitment to keep providing milk even though it costs them money is admirable, otherwise you would simply been drinking cheap imported milk where cows are kept in lower standards and fed with poor quality feed, since the cow is using that feed to produce the milk you end up drinking bad quality milk. You are the only person that loses in the end.....
I prefer my milk produced by cows if I'm honest

They're around, 7 day week, morning to night, feed bags wrapped around their legs on old fashioned tractors, tenant farmers. Pay them for their milk, a sensible realistic amount.

I'm with you, Arla was recently in the news for having the worst relationship with its farmers
Aldi and Lidl queues make any deal cold for me.
Realise I'm being grumpy so not voting but tend to avoid both stores due to queues when paying.

They need self serve points like a cat needs a nap
Do Aldi Lidl sell goats milk ? anyone know ?

​i agree about Aldi, always saying look how much you could save if you bought our brands whilst comparing them against Nescafe, Kellogs etc. ridiculous
As has been said not sure milk deals are to be celebrated.

"yay i saved 35p" and at huge cost to the producers

Common organic misconceptions. No hormones are fed to cows and there is no significant benefits nutritionally or in terms of health.

You should open your eyes a bit more or prehaps just keep your cliched rubbish to yourself.

Your stereotypical wealthy farmers are all arable farmers, normally from the SE. Stock men have taken a pasting since BSE / Foot & Mouth and never really recovered. The problem is not helped by the average townie who cannot distinguish one type of farm from another!

I would much rather see milk increase in price if it meant our farms were sustainable.

BMW's what? Or did you mean Range Rover's? I can sort of understand that some people are ignorant in the use of the apostrophe but same person in same sentence! oO

If you care about animal welfare, then don't buy any dairy products.

I guess if you don't use them you don't know how fast those queues move. One person in front of you in Waitrose discussing the weather with an employee trained to be 'customer friendly' takes much longer. As is the time it takes a Tesco employee to come and 'approve' your alcohol purchase at the self service till.
