Popular in Europe: Raw Milk by Vending Machine!

By Sally Fallon Morell

While US health officials continue their knee-jerk opposition to raw milk, European sales of fresh raw milk by vending machine are growing by leaps and bounds. Several versions are pictured below. The sign on the truck says Latte fresco crudo di giornata (Fresh raw milk daily). The raw milk dispenser is in the lower right hand corner of the truck body, next to the cab. Note the model pictured in the lower right—it’s painted with a cow and green pasture and placed next to a soft drink vending machine! The model shown in the middle is used in schools! We need these vending machines here—even if only on farms. They completely relieve the farmer of having to bottle his milk—the consumer brings the containers and fills them with a punch of a button.

  1. All over Eastern Europe have these Milk trucks, they even have loud music, like the Ice Cream trucks in the cities, of all over the United States have. The milk trucks play the A loud, carnival kind of music, going through a block of apartments and then everyone, knows the truck will be parked in an area close, for about 45min filling bottles. It’s pretty much all mothers who are getting milk for there children. The truck comes 2-3times a week. You just bring your own 1liter bottles, and usually it’s the truck owner/driver who fills you bottles, not a machine. And usually he will sell you a glass bottle if you don’t have anything

  2. How pleased I was to find a farm in our new home village, that has a vending machine for raw milk to be purchased 24/7 in the middle of Switzerland!
    I’ve opened my eyes to many things These couple of years, including the regular dairy slaughter, so now we are vegan until we find organic milk products without murder (#MilkWithoutMurder)

  3. Todos los jueves me desplazo a Madrid desde Friol llevando leche cruda de vaca del día, homologada por sanidad para su venta en España, por mi vaquería además de sus derivados. Se recogen encargos.
