If you're looking to buy your milk somewhere other than Coles or Woolworths, this is the place to find it. Please remember, if you DO buy your milk in a supermarket, it CAN benefit farmers IF it is 'branded' milk - e.g., Devondale is a Murray Goulburn brand, Pauls is Australian-produced milk from Queensland, owned by the Italian Parmalat company; Dairy Farmers, Pura and The Complete Dairy are also Australian milk brands owned by the global food giant Lion; Anchor is a Fonterra brand. In Australian supermarkets, all those brands are Australian milk. It's a complex picture, but you have a choice. This page is provided to help you exercise that choice. Whatever you do, please avoid buying Coles or Woolworths plain-label/home-brand milk. It's still high quality Australian milk produced by the same farmers, but those companies' practices are screwing farmers and that's part of the picture you can re-shape by not buying these plain label products.
You can also add your favourite farmer-friendly milk brand to the list and let others know where it's available.
If we all pool our local knowledge, we can help each other find better milk - and you will be helping your local farmers.
(We put this together in a hurry, so please excuse any glitches!)
Please add, share, but most of all, use this list to make better purchasing decisions - it WILL make a diference!
