Coles won’t be scrapping their $1 a litre milk range.

Yesterday Woolworth’s announced they would be increasing the price of their supermarket milk by 10c per litre following pleas from the struggling dairy industry.

In a statement the retailer said they would be “exploring additional options in relation to how to best support Australia’s hard working farmers”, but stopped short of promising any price changes. 

“Coles is committed to finding a better model that can be adopted by the industry to assist Australian farmers, and intends to liaise with relevant parties including government and the ACCC,” the statement read.

“Coles is seeking a long-term solution that does not disadvantage our customers and supports our dairy farmers.”
