Jamie Oliver's Milk Spill
Celebrity Chef Jamie Oliver has had a spill when it comes to the UK dairy pricing debate. Oliver took a stand with dairy farmers against milk processors and their pricing agenda, but the Daily Telegraph has revealed that Oliver's own restaurants are supplied by a milk processor that pays dairy famers below the price it takes to produce the milk. Will Oliver be crying over spilled milk?
A representative of Mr Oliver confirmed his main supplier for restaurants including Fifteen, Jamie's Italian and Barbecoa in London is Freshways, that farmers say is paying around 28p - below the cost of production.
An unnamed source in the retail world said it was unfair of Mr Oliver to urge a boycott before he had checked his own supply.
“What is it about stones and glass houses? Jamie should have put his own house in order before aiming some cheap shots at us,” he said.
