Vol. 291 No. 10

Written Answers. - Milk Conversion Costs.


asked the Minister for Agriculture and Fisheries the cost per pound of converting milk into butter; the cost of packaging butter into 56 lb. containers; and the cost of repackaging it into single pounds for retail.

Actual production and packaging costs for butter may vary as between individual processing units. This is a matter for discussion between the producer and processing interests concerned and I am not aware that specific costings have been agreed between the two sides. I do not have any function in determining such costings.
