Milk.....again

We have discussed milk before but there has been a recent change which now allows farmers to export milk anywhere without the previous restrictions.
Some farmers claim this will make milk even cheaper and drive many out of business whilst other farmers claim the opposite as they can now export to anywhere in the world.
So what's the likely outcome ?

Re: Milk.....again

I hope the BRITISH farmers, get their act together on this, and do some "proper" marketing... of .... BRITISH MILK...  flaunting the union flag on all milk sold in the u.k. that has been farm produced in the u.k .... for the u.k market...
Hopefully, the BRITISH public will rally to the cause, and not accept "forren" milk, even if it is cheaper, ....
BRITISH MILK, should be better quality, and, of course, much fresher, than "forren" milk, because it does not have to be transported for thousands of miles, before it reaches the consumer.
when they do the marketing, they should stress the importance of it being "home produced", fresher, and better quality, so keeping the british countryside and british farming at it`s best.

I doubt that will happen as the majority of the British public want a bargain rather than support local produce Sad

I remember that it gave us a big laugh at school (didn't care about such things back then, so condoms were just funny things!!)... Grin

Your comment, is the exact reason I said BRITISH .... as opposed to ENGLISH... British, to me, means... England, Scotland, N.I. and Wales... would even include Eire, in that context, as their dairy industry is as good as ours...

Re: Milk.....again

I only said "Scottish Milk" as that is WHAT is on the bottle. Not English/British but Scottish.
I know I used to buy "Yorkshire Milk" when I was in Yorkshire last.
