On Monday, February 11, I bought four pints of one per cent fat milk for £1.05 in Morrisons in Bideford.
On Tuesday I noticed all their milk had gone up to an exorbitant £1.49 for four pints.
Although three could be bought for £3, I was shocked to see the price rise by 50 per cent overnight.
Morrisons explained that it was to provide a better deal for dairy farmers, which is fine, but you can’t drink milk at a faster rate so how do they benefit?
The Co-op in Mill Street charge £1 for four pints and I for one will get my milk from there in future, and hope Morrisons might reduce their price to match.
