Just had this email forwarded to me from a local milko at Aussie Farmers Direct. Didn’t know this!
“Canberra Milk Should Be Renamed Tokyo Milk”
I’ve talked to so many people who don’t realise the brand “Canberra Milk” is now part of the giant Kirin Corporation of Japan’s stable of brands (just like all the Dairy Farmers and Pura products). This is a major part of the reason over 95% of all milk brands in Australia are foreign owned. I also say it should be renamed Tokyo Milk because that would be more honest labelling. Why not forward this email to your Canberra email list and ask them if they know? They probably don’t as the takeover was done during Easter several years ago when no-one was watching the news. This was a big part of my reason to switch to Aussie Farmers Direct. They can’t even guarantee all the milk they sell comes from Australian owned farms. Aussie Farmers can. Pass it on.
