I'll have sympathy with dairy farmers when they stop making so much noise at 5am.

88p in Morrisons if you have one nearby.

Totally agree bottled water is way overpriced!!!!!!

Seriously I would hope super markets making 100s of millions in profit would take the hit and pay more for milk!

The Morrisons milk is only 2 litres. Can't stand Morrisons. Not surprised they've got problems.

That's my first thought when I see cheap milk.

What I need to know is, where can I buy milk so that I know a fair amount of the price is going back to the farmers? I'm prepared to pay more for it as a fair price so that we don't destroy the industry. But I don't want to pay more only for the supermarket to keep the extra as more profit.v

oO Most dairy farmers start far earlier than 5am.......to produce milk fit for our breakfast tables......with the lowering of prices by our supermarkets, finding it harder & harder to stay in British milk production. The noise they make at 5am will be the least of our worries when we as a country cannot supply our demand for milk & have to rely on foreign imports......God help us then!

One thing that I cant figure is how the foreign imports can be so cheap, what corners do the cut? I have heard of other euro countries ignoring EU rules on welfare but I still dont get how its cheaper to ship milk over the channel.

don't milk and more get their milk from local suppliers? i used to use them and they were very good, although more pricey, but since times got hard I had to look after my family first.

The UK produces over a billion litres of fresh milk a year.
This years production in up 6% on last year.
Arla have just opened, what will be the largest fresh milk processing plant in the world, at Thame.
Seems that things are working quite well.

I think it was supposed to be a joke. I agree that everyone should be paid a fair price, but perhaps this is running as a Loss Leader to get people into the store? If it was possible to get a sensible & honest answer out of Supermarkets, I'd have a go. :-)

Been this price in Iceland stores for months - they are only playing catch up/match ...

Chatting to a local farmer and it seems the trend of changing land use from dairy to arable is continuing as there is so little money in dairy due to supermarkets dictating the price. Sad times... I hadn't thought about us eventually having to rely on imports.

Are all the supermarkets the same?

No. Tesco, Sainsbury, Waitrose and Marks & Spencer are all paying 30p a litre or more to dairy farmers, says the RABDF, which it says is the minimum survival threshold for farmers: "They are not so much the good guys, but they are at least paying 30p." Amid widening protests, Asda this week agreed to raise its price to farmers to 29.5p a litre, while Co-operative raised its price to 29p. RABDF welcomed the rise, but says is still not enough. It reserves its wrath for the supermarkets and mini-markets that pay less than 30p. "Morrisons, Aldi, Lidl, Londis and Mace are among the worst and paying the lowest prices," says Errington.

I find it strange that CoOp pay only 29p as their milk is expensive compared to other supermarkets. I think it was £1.45 last time I was in there!!!

My family are farmers. I do know that it's now more cost effective to NOT keep a pig, than it is to keep one. Work that out! Red tape and interfering politicians are everywhere!!

Apparently their welfare rules are not as strict as ours.......our milk is tested daily for antibiotics,hygiene etc & rejected & dumped if there are any irregularities, with penalties to the farmer! As It should be!
But whether foreign imports have to meet such high standards is an unknown....I know which I'd rather purchase, even at a higher cost to myself!

Can anyone find any current information on which supermarkets are being fairer to Farmers, and therefore best to buy milk from?

Pretty poor then.

Farm foods is 2 x 4pt for 1.60, which is 80p per 4pt.

Cold as Farm foods cheaper

Farmfoods sell their milk in 2 litre cartons, which are 3.52 pints each which makes them fractionally more expensive than this deal.

However, as previously posted I am for paying more for milk, to the right retailer, fair price for the farmers so fractions of a penny at these kind of outlets is irrelevant to me.

See if you can get a local delivery. We pay £1.80 for 4 pints delivered twice a week. You'll then be supporting local farmers, and get it delivered as a bonus. A nice side effect is you don't end up popping out for milk and don't end up spending an extra £10-20 on other items you didn't need, so can just rely on one big shop.

If Iceland etc can charge this price and still make a profit, how much money are Tesco etc making out of all of us?
