Lolly Scramble: Million Litres Of Milk To Be Given Away


Croatian dairy farmers will give away one million litres of milk today to anyone who wants it. What they don’t end up giving away, they will throw away. Croatian dairy farmers are in an ongoing battle with the government over the price they want to be paid per litre of milk.

On Monday dairy farmers over the country stopped delivering milk to producers, and they say that until their demands are met, they will continue to give their milk away or even tip it all over their fields.

Problems started back in February this year, when the price per litre to farmers was lowered from 2.65 kuna to 2.09 kuna (0.28 euro). The Dairy Farmers Association are demanding 4.05 kuna (0.54 euro) per litre. The Ministry said yesterday that the situation was stable, and only 10 percent of milk suppliers in Croatia had joined in the protest and halted milk deliveries.
