Frankly, I can't afford to make the switch. So I won't be.

Shopping done and after all this I didn't get a choice. Woolies brand was all that was left! I only bought 6l to get us through a few days but will need more soon.
I get the whole anti-duopoly thing, but a lot of the ridiculously cheap homebrand pricing seems to have started in response to Aldi's pricing (eg. 75c kg flour etc).
I remember when aldi first arrived in Melb and it was all "the consumer wins, no more big 2 over-pricing everything, this will bring prices down" media. Well that's what's happened yet it is still the big 2's fault?

They may help in offering an additional sales option (so may allow farmers and manufacturers an additional choice instead of having to sell to WW/Coles) - but companies who have established brands will have to sell their products significantly cheaper to Aldi who will re-brand them as Aldi products.
It wont actually help as much as an additional supermarket retailer.

We are a family of 5 and drink approx 3ltrs a week (therefore buy branded milk). If we consumed lots I'd have to consider unbranded as an option)...

We go through 3-4L a week and get it delivered through Aussie Farmers Direct. We've been buying our milk from them for years but I didn't really appreciate the service they are doing for our community until now. It must be a tough decision for those who want to make ethical choices but can't afford it. Maybe they could offset their homebrand milk purchases with branded cheese/ yoghurt instead
