Milk availability has been questioned in recent weeks.
However the Bendigo Standard has come across a supplier who says that availability is not an issue.
“Milk? I can get you milk -sniff-. What kind of milk do you want man? -sniff- What kind do you want?” said Mr. Hey-You-Can’t-Print-My-Name-Dude.
“I got Full Cream, Half Cream, Light, Skim, Low Fat, a2, all permeate free man, none cut with that permeate stuff. None -sniff-. I sell good stuff man.”
And that is not all he can access.
“Hey, you want unpasteurised? Pretty heavy stuff man. Think you can handle it?”
The Bendigo Standard asked for a price on a litre of regular full cream.
“$2.20 a litre man, $2.20 a litre. It’s good stuff. I aren’t jerking you around man. In fact, in fact, I like your face. $2.1o for you. Nobody else. I wouldn’t do that price for anybody else. $2.10.”
The Bendigo Standard enquired if this lowering is the direction milk prices are headed, as stock returns and vendors attempt to undercut each other for sales.
Mr. Hey-You-Can’t-Print-My-Name-Dude replied, “What? -sniff- I don’t know man. Look. It’s going to go up man. Okay? Take it or leave it -sniff- I aren’t got all day see. We got a deal?”
The Bendigo Standard bought the milk and is having cereal for breakfast.
