The average cost of cow’s milk has become more expensive than the most popular non-dairy alternatives in much of the United Kingdom, according to a new report.
According to a report by the research company Assosia, a two-pint bottle of cow’s milk costs an average of £1.25 ($1.38) across four of the UK’s main supermarkets. This marks a 36% jump since January.
The nearest comparable plant-based alternative cost £1.05 for soy milk, £1.24 for oat milk and £1.07 for almond milk. This marks the first time that the average cost of these dairy alternatives is lower than the average cost of traditional dairy milk.
