Milk Mayhem .... Evasive Organic retailer ...

In the epitome of pseudo middle class chic, we get the weekly organic vegetable box delivery from a well known specialist company in the South East of England. One could wax lyrical about perceived benefits etc, but I know that the cynical readership of this blog will merely tut and shake their heads.

However, in light of the current coverage regarding a fair price for Milk from the Dairy Farmers. My Wife has been doing some considerable research. She did manage to find a local milkman who delivers, but found out that they source a brand that is notoriously unfair to farmers.

So, having our weekly organic box of veggie joy. She approached the organic retailer and asked them the question - how much do you give the farmer. Using their chat forum, provided on their website. We have discovered that they do not want to answer this question. Priced at £2.20 for two litres, you kinda hoped that the milk is obtained from Cows used to considerable comfort and farmers chuffed with a sensible deal.

That is what you would think?

However, my wife is struggling to get a straight answer out of them. They claim that 'all the money for the milk' goes to the farmer. Yes, we know this, we are not dim. But they do seem somewhat unwilling to say how much that is when compared to their chic price of £2.20.

We pay £1.00 for two litres from a well known 'middle class' retailer. We are also aware that they pay £0.33 approx per litre, making it a £0.66 approx pay back to the farmer. With some other supermarkets paying as little as £0.22 and the best giving only a penny more. We are happier with their stance. There is a mark up, but not a silly mark up which we feel is probably fairer (if this does not actually make a loss).

Dear organic vegetable box delivery retailer - please tell us hapless pseudo middle class types what your price is. It is affecting our sense of social calm and is leaving a curdling feeling each time we eat our organic muesli.
