Woolworths to dump $1 litre milk

By Geoff Adams

Supermarket chain, Woolworths has announced it will remove $1 per litre fresh milk from sale nationwide from tomorrow, Tuesday.

The move will see the supermarket sell two and three litre varieties of Woolworths branded fresh milk for $2.20 and $3.30 respectively. Every cent of the increase will end up with Australian dairy farmers.

It follows the success of the Drought Relief Milk range on the eastern seaboard, where it has delivered $5.8 million in relief to more than 285 dairy farmers since September 2018.

Woolworths Group CEO Brad Banducci said: “We believe the long term sustainability of our dairy industry - and the regional communities they help support - is incredibly important for Australia.''
