  • Woolworths - Woolworths to partner with Manning Valley Dairy Farmers on milk trial
    to negotiate a landmark deal with Woolworths that will allow them to trial the supply of milk directly to the retailer in what will be an Australian supermarket first Woolworths wants to stock homogenised and unhomogenised milk sourced directly from the Manning Valley farmers in stores in New South Wales by the middle of the year Under the trial the milk will be marketed under a new brand that will be jointly developed by the farmers and Woolworths Woolworths has had direct relationships with meat and fresh produce farmers for more than 20 years and today most of these products are sourced directly from the producer However this will be the first time an Australian retailer has contracted farmers directly for drinking milk The trial of a direct relationship is seeking to give dairy farmers a better deal for their milk end to end transparency from shed to shelf the certainty of a longer term contract and a closer relationship to their consumers Manning Valley dairy farmer Tim Bale said We think this trial has the potential to provide a much better deal for farmers in the Manning Valley Our aim is also to secure longer term contracts which will give us the confidence to invest in our businesses for a sustainable future There s no doubt that consumers like 1 milk but we think they also recognise that farmer deserve a fair price for what we produce We are looking forward to putting a great new product on Woolworths shelves that is fresh locally produced and tastes great It is to Woolworths credit that they have embraced this idea and are committed to making it work in partnership with dairy farmers in the Manning Valley Mr Bale said Woolworths General Manager of Fresh Food Pat McEntee said that the trial of a direct relationship with farmers would benefit both farmers and consumers and could be a model that will enhance the long term sustainability of the dairy sector There is no doubt there are a variety of significant issues affecting different parts of Australia s dairy industry No one factor whether it be the impact of 1 milk or a tough export market exacerbated by a high Australian dollar is solely responsible for state of the industry This trial will not be the silver bullet to fix all the problems but we think it could herald a new way of delivering better returns to farmers and a more efficient supply chain Over the last couple of years our customers have expressed their concern about dairy farmers long term future in this country We have also taken on board the industry s concerns about the negativity that has been attached to their commodity and we have looked for opportunities to improve this Australia has one of the lowest levels of dairy consumption among developed economies and we see great opportunities to work with farmers and processors to grow demand promote innovation and ensure the industry has a bright future We
