Default milk

Where does the local milk come from? I mean where are the cows?

It isn't local apparently. I was in Berlin a couple of years ago at a Citrix event. One of the companies they had talking to the press was a Kiwi dairy company. I got chatting to rep from the firm after I said I had flown in from the Middle East. She revealed that the vast majority of it is shipped in from New Zealand.

Apparently the majority of the companies just buy it in bulk and plaster their names on it.

Hence why it goes off so fast compared to milk from the UK (like two-three days). It's spent a ridiculous amount of time being shipped in.

We only ever drink Almari. A friend of ours with an interest in animal rights visited the plant in Saudi, and said he couldn't believe how well the cows were treated. Air conditioning, fresh air and grass, classical music... can't remember what else, but he was well impressed.

Irrelevant.

Does the milk taste better on a blind taste test?

This is true as far as Australia goes, but I don't think milk from NZ (Fonterra) reaches the middle East, I suspect they were meaning cheese etc.

Strangely, NZ dairy products are cheaper in Australia than they are in NZ, go figure.

It's also the only one that doesn't add anything to the milk, so it tests like it should.

You sure about that? Their chocolate milk is very thick (granted, just how I like it – reminds me of Frijj) btu surely that must have something added?

You're just being silly now. Cows don't produce chocolate milk...

I always wondered about that.........No matter what the date says on the bottle it is always shite after 2/3 days. Though, It does taste the same as it would in the UK.

But but... What about the chocolate cows

I mean it's thicker compared to the other brands.
