Nice lit­tle churner

Lancashire Life - - COUNTRYSID­E LIFE -

Dairy UK, the or­gan­i­sa­tion which rep­re­sents the milk in­dus­try, said doorstep de­liv­er­ies of glass bot­tles were now around one mil­lion per day. Just two years ago the fig­ure was es­ti­mated to be nearer 800,000.

Back in the mid 1970s more than 90 per cent of milk was put into glass bot­tles, but that had fallen to un­der three per cent by 2016. De­spite a red­c­tion in sales of cows’ milk, the mar­ket for glass bot­tles ap­pears to be hold­ing steady, and even slightly in­creas­ing. With the gov­ern­ment promising leg­is­la­tion to re­duce the amount of plas­tic in cir­cu­la­tion, that rise is ex­pected to ac­cel­er­ate.
