500ml semi-skimmed bottles of Cravendale will be sold for 60p alongside its pre-packed sandwiches and salads.

 

Excited

 

Speaking to Farmers Guardian, Mrs Crocker said: “I am beside myself. I am just so excited for this to finally happen after trying for such a long time.

“It finally looks like we have got a break. Now we just need the others to get on board.”

 

Moira Howie, nutrition manager at Waitrose, said milk is an ‘ideal’ drink to go and a great source of protein and calcium.

 

“It hydrates and quenches thirst and is a perfect addition to a healthy balanced diet”, she added.
