went to get milk from farmfood was 2.bottles for £1 then went up to £1.20.now an astonishing £1.50.for two. was so disappointing won't be buying from there no more as the milk bottle is smaller than normal Tesco one may as well get from main supermarket and thicker creamy milk

it's been moving between a £1 and £2 for years it's still cheaper than most other places and generally u get a decent date on it.

I don't think I'd class £1.50 for two bottles of milk as "astonishing".

Farmers are struggling, They deserve their fair share.

Yeah it went up this morning, but it will be coming back down later on near Christmas time back to 2 for £1, well that's what my manager said. could be wrong

Ok cool get your milk from somewhere else.

Some people amaze me on here oO

Buy a cow. Milk on demand and then a burger or two at the end of it.

Thank you for reminding me I haven't done my Shoptize milk receipt yet.

You can ask, but you will have to wait until he posts a thread in the ASK section as to whether such a thing can happen first...

Mutley, he's had it now whenever he posts X)

Surprising the reputatuon you gain from asking ridiculous questions time and time again when you can simply use a search engine or use common sense...

I got as far as 'but have been a vegan for over a year now'. It's going to try and ruin cheese for me, isn't it?

Still a bargain and as shaunco said, farmers really are struggling, I don't mind paying around £1 for 4 pints.

Milk is too cheap anyway. This is one product that needs a price rise to benefit the farmers rather than the shops.

Only way this will help local farmers is if they have an active campagian displaying how much goes to the farmers per pint on the bottle/carton. What's to stop prices going up and then next reneogotiation the price staying the same but the farmers getting less. You need to advertise it's a local product and what the farmer is getting. You also need to make sure that it's going to the smaller independant farms and not a farm owned by a supermarket or you're just driving the price of milk up for no reason.

This got to be one of the hardest questions for a politician, how much is a litre of milk.

I used to live next to a dairy farm but it was financially unsustainable and the farmer moved over to arable.

If we don't pay a reasonable price for milk we will find more and more of it gets imported from Europe where the use of prophylactic medications is prolific and the welfare levels less stringent etc.

Hopefully farmfoods are passing on the price increase onto the farmers.



This is still cheaper than elsewhere. Aldi have put their four pinta up to 0.95 pence, with the likes of Asda mirroring that. The equivalent price increase in Farmfoods would put four pints at 0.85 pence. Use your vouchers and that comes down to 0.77 pence. This is still nearly twenty percent cheaper than Aldi!
