Love Milk Love Local

Just a little bit of information about why local milk is so important;

  • Two dairy farmers are going out of business every day
  • If the current rate continues they’ll be no British dairy farms in 15 years
  • In the mid 90’s there were 36,000 dairy farmers producing enough milk to meet the UK national quota
  • Today there are only 12,000
  • Reasons behind this start from the demise of the Milk Marketing Board in the 1990’s
  • Since then farmers have struggled to receive a fair price for their milk, leading to many quitting the industry
  • Some farmers have not even been receiving enough money per litre to meet the production costs.
  • Liquid milk consumption is now 15% lower than ten years ago
