Milk cleared from shop shelves in price protest

Groups of dairy farmers have been protesting at the price they are paid for milk by removing cartons from supermarket shelves across the country and either paying for it or dumping it at the checkout. The protest, dubbed the Milk Trolley Challenge, came after Arla, Britain's biggest milk co-operative, announced a 0.78p a litre price cut, taking the standard litre price to 23.01p for members. The British dairy organisation AHDB said it costs between 30p and 32p to produce a litre of milk. NFU president Meurig Raymond said: 'The market situation in dairy ? is driving farming families to a desperate state with returns from the market failing to cover costs of production'
