There seem to be milk wars afloat, in London, Manchester, Bristol and, for all I know, in lots of other places.
Nisa-Today's retailer Ken Naran was the latest to ring with concerns over his supplier in the North-west, who originally charged just 45p for
2 litres (rrp £1.50). The established supplier in the area was selling at 75p. The new supplier even offered to put it in writing that prices would be held for a year.
"I said to them okay," said Ken. "Good price, but when you've driven the rest out of business your prices will go up and there will be no choice."
Six months later the price has gone up to 69p, proving his point. I would be interested in feedback from retailers or local dairymen.
