Parmalat Here’s how it’s gonna work
Parmalat has led the charge in dropping the purchase price of raw milk from farmers by 30c per litre, effective immediately, with another 30c cut on its way on 1 July. Lancewood, Clover and Dairy Belle have announced that they will follow suit, to the dismay of farmers, who have mentioned, as they do, that this could put them out of business. At fault, apparently, is consumer demand.
Comment: Which in these straitened times is calling for something a little cheaper on the Rice Crispies in the morning.
