  • Woolworths - Woolworths supports Queensland Dairy Farmers
    said Woolworths has a strong track record in helping the agricultural community deal with the aftermath of devastating events The floods and cyclones have had a far reaching impact on many industries but dairy farmers have been particularly hard hit in recent weeks and need the support of retailers and consumers to recover Queensland Dairyfarmers Organisation President Brian Tessmann said this announcement from Woolworths was very welcome at a time when dairy farming families and the industry was in desperate need of good news The scale of the destruction is unprecedented and has cost the industry tens of millions of dollars Hardly a farming family in Queensland was untouched by these disasters with many cases of severe damage and financial loss It will take some farmers years to recover and it is a sad reality that some farmers will be assessing how they can get through this crisis Importantly this donation from Woolworths will help with the recovery but just as importantly it will boost farmers confidence in the future of the dairy industry We encourage all Australians to support our dairy farmers in their hour of need by purchasing milk through Woolworths stores We also encourage consumers to buy branded milk products as the extra few cents per litre for that milk makes a real difference for us on the farm We are also pleased that Woolworths is standing by farmers during this time of cutthroat and unsustainable price discounting which will further compound the problems of Queensland farmers If left unchecked relentless discounting will have a very negative impact on our farmers and their communities The donation applies to every brand and variety of fresh white milk bought at any Woolworths store nationally All monies will go to the Queensland Dairy Farmers Relief Fund and all dairy farmers
