“If Coles won’t support the local dairy farmers well come on public don’t support Coles. It’s as simple as that.”
The push for a 10c per litre levy on milk to help drought-stricken farmers is growing, but Woolworths has said they’ll only do it if all the other supermarkets support the levy as well.
Minister for Agriculture and Water Resources David Littleproud told the Nine Network Woolworths have shown support for the milk levy, but the process can only move forward if Coles get on board.
Farmers are calling on the public to boycott Coles if they can’t offer them the support they deserve.
When a member of the public questioned Coles about their decision not to support the levy their response was still not acceptable.
“Coles has decided the most effective way to assist farmers across the whole sector is to raise and match funds at the checkouts to provide CWA the funds to support drought-affected communities.”
Would you support a 10c milk levy?
