VOTE: Would you pay an extra 10c a litre for milk
SUPERMARKET giant Woolworths is on board to initiate a 10c milk levy increase in a bid to help drought-stricken farmers.
But opposition supermarket Coles remains on the backfoot, and has not announced if it will be joining.
The campaign is lead by Queensland Dairyfarmers Organisation, and processor Parmalat (Pauls) has announced they will pass on the full levy amount to farmers should it come into affect.
NORCO has also announced it will increase the base price of milk by five cents a litre, saying its farmer can not wait for the levy to be introduced.
Would you be willing to pay an extra 10c/litre to help QLD dairyfarmers?
This poll ended on 10 September 2018.
This is not a scientific poll. The results reflect only the opinions of those who chose to participate.
Federal Agricultural Minister David Littleproud acknowledged Woolworths and Coles were sensitive to the impact 10c extra a litre of milk would place on family budgets.
"Consumers need to understand the impact of having few Australian dairyfarmers north of the Victorian border would be much greater in the long term," he said.
