Find farmer-friendly milk

The Milk List in the news: here and here.

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!
