More milk to sup­port farm­ers

Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - LIFE -

WOOL­WORTHS will launch a lim­ited edi­tion milk range in Queens­land from mid-Oc­to­ber 2018 to help pro­vide short-term re­lief to drought-stricken dairy farm­ers on the east­ern se­aboard.

The new Drought Re­lief range will of­fer cus­tomers ad­di­tional Wool­worths Full Cream and Wool­worths Lite Milk va­ri­eties at $2.20 for two litres and $3.30 for three litres, with the ex­tra 10 cents per litre to go to dairy farm­ers in drought af­fected ar­eas.

The su­per­mar­ket will work with its own brand fresh milk sup­pli­ers who source milk from drought af­fected re­gions to setup a drought re­lief over­sight com­mit­tee.

Wool­worths cus­tomers can also con­tinue sup­port­ing dairy farm­ers by buy­ing lo­cal dairy brands and na­tional brands who are im­ple­ment­ing their own drought re­lief mea­sures on shelf.

Wool­worths 2L Full Cream and Wool­worths 2L Lite Milk will re­main avail­able for cus­tomers at $2.

The dairy re­lief milk range builds on the $7 mil­lion Wool­worths has raised for Ru­ral Aid’s Buy a Bale pro­gram in sup­port of Aus­tralian farm­ers.
