The price of fresh milk in Greece is the third most expensive in Europe, behind Cyprus and Italy.
From now on, there will be two types of milk in the Greek market: fresh milk with two-day expiry and long-lasting milk with a shelf-life of 11 days.
The move is testing the cohesion of the Greek coalition government.
How much does milk costs in other European countries? Germany’s milk is the cheapest and costs from 0.48 to 0.69 euros while the most expensive costs from 1.19 to 1.29 euros. In England, the milk costs from one pound to 1.10 pounds, i.e. from 1.20 to 1.32 euros. In France, it costs from 0.83 to 1.37 euros while in Spain the milk costs from 0.82 to 1.39 euros.
