My FB news feed is chock full of stories about the dairy industry and people posting 'yay' photos of supermarket fridges with hardly any home brand sold.
I'm grocery shopping tomorrow and feel like I should wear dark glasses and a wig. Buying 16l of milk a week, if I switch to branded that will mean an extra $30-40 on the grocery bill, which would completely blow our budget.
**edit - did my original maths wrong - would be $16-20ish extra a week. Sorry, I shouldn't try any thinking before 9am!
Do you buy branded milk only? Is there a cheaper branded milk in Vic?
Is buying branded milk actually going to make a difference to what farmers get paid when it sounds like they're being screwed over in general (eg. Back dating price changes and witholding payment)?
