Price of milk

February 26, 2011

Three years ago PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) sent a letter to cofounders of Ben & Jerry’s, urging them to replace cow’s milk they use in their ice cream products with human breast milk. Ben and Jerry replied: »…we believe a mother’s milk is best used for her child«.

There is a shortage of breast milk. It is needed for premature or sick babies, whose mothers are not able to produce their own milk, due to illness, medication, adoption. Mothers can donate milk to so-called human milk banks.

London icecreamist has now discovered business opportunity in mother’s milk. His product, by the name of Baby Gaga is marketed as “organic, free-range and totally natural”. Milk procurement price amounts to €54 per litre (£30 per pint).
