Following the commitment from Woolies and Coles to lift the price of some of its homebrand milk, Milk Maid Marian asked Aldi if it would follow suit. Here’s its response:
“In recent months, we have accepted price increases from a number of our processors to compensate farmers due to current market conditions.”
“Although the cost price we pay for milk has increased, at this point in time we do not intend on increasing retail prices for our customers.
“We support the findings of the recent ACCC Dairy Inquiry and agree with the recommendation to introduce a mandatory Code of Conduct.
“We remain committed to playing our role in contributing to the ongoing success of the dairy industry and a long term commitment to Australian farmers.”
