A rural supermarket has raised the price of milk in support of local farmers affected by the drought.

An IGA store in Ulladulla, Shoalhaven, increased the price of milk by 10 cents per liter, and all additional profits are delivered directly to four of its local dairy producers.

The co-owner of the IGA store, Anthony Latter, said the decision is a direct response to what his customers have been asking for, ABC reported.

"They have been asking what milk to buy, since there are many varieties of milk and they want to support local farmers," he said.

The action occurs when large supermarkets continue to resist and ignore the pleas of farmers to increase the price of milk, or for the government to introduce a tax to ease the burden on farmers during the crisis.

"Doing it this way means we know where the money goes and we can keep it in our community," said Mr. Latter's business partner, Shane Wilson.

Local farmer Robert Miller described the generosity of his community as overwhelming.

While he still hopes that large supermarkets will step forward and do the same, his appreciation for the local community is immense.

"When you have the community supporting you in a situation where you are losing money, producing milk is a good feeling," Miller said.

He described the gesture as one of the greatest he could imagine.

The supermarket will try the price increase until at least Christmas, but we hope to keep it well in the future.
