British dairy farmers do a fantastic job but times are tough for them. Here at Nemi we are supporting them by ensuring they have healthy productive cows, receive fair payment for their labours and the market for their milk recognises its real value.
Nemi wants to champion local farmers and ensure that every dairy farmer who supplies Nemi milk gets paid a premium, not just a select few.
In 2017, John Whaite wrote an article outlining the real cost of cheap milk. In it, he describes his family background in the dairy industry and how his parents are losing around 6ppl (pence per litre) every day.
This amounts to thousands of pounds every single week. With supermarkets selling four pints of milk at 89p, it is British Dairy Farmers who are losing out the most.
