not too bad then Bert, I mainly buy Gold Top but also Tesco Organic Whole if im a bit skint and thats similar price to 58p a pint, two pints are about £1 odd. The milkman wouldnt deliver to me because im in flats, if I had a house, at that price, I would probably consider it to show support for the local milkmen who are struggling more and more.
Milk in bags has been available in many other countries for years, I watched a Tonight recycling programme last year and they were saying about it coming soon, but they did mention many drawbacks, both enviromentally and practicality wise. Personally I will be sticking to cartons.
Interestingly, a bag of milk should be cheaper to produce the packaging by a couple of pence, I bet the retail prices dont reflect this - as always, its an increase profit excercise portrayed as being an enviromental scheme.
If they really care about the enviroment, why do all their products have so much packaging, why do they have open fridges and freezers, and why don't they turn the air-con and lighting down a touch?
One thing I have always wondered with milk, is why watered down milk (ie. skimmed and semi-skimmed) is always the same price as whole milk... if I were in a bar and ordered a whisky, knowing it had been watered down, I wouldnt expect to pay the same price.
