Lion Dairy & Drinks are temporarily adding 10 cents per litre to the wholesale price of one, two and three litre bottles sold through participating retailers.
Dairy Farmers Milk Co-operative (DFMC) is a farmer-owned co-operative of 186 dairy farmers in Queensland, NSW, Victoria and South Australia, with all milk supplied by DFMC sold to Lion Dairy and Drinks.
Chair of the DFMC, Andrew Burnett, is delighted with the move by Lion Dairy & Drinks, which he said is an important step towards supporting the sustainability of Australia’s dairy farmers through a difficult period.
“Any increase in the wholesale price of milk that supports our farmers – especially those who are facing drought – is welcomed.
“The money raised from this temporary wholesale milk price increase will make a difference and really help with the higher costs of feed and water.
“I want to thank in advance all consumers who take this easy and effective step towards helping our dairy farmers by simply choosing Dairy Farmers or Pura white milk from participating retailers,” said Mr Burnett.
