Question: What do grocery stores do with the milk that they dont sell!?
I was wondering what they do with all those gallons of milk!!!!?!?!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

They scan the bar code into a computer system and record the expired milk as shrink (damaged/expired items)!. Then, they have whoever is working the dairy department wheel them (the emptied milk jugs) to the backroom and toss them into the industrial trash compactor!. They do not ever donate fresh milk to food charities only because it is perishable and hard to control freshness quality with transporting them!. Grocery stores will usually throw away gallons of milk that will expire in 7 days!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

empty it in the drain and send the jugs back to the company to get credit for it!. It doesnt always happen though, its very rare to have outdatesWww@FoodAQ@Com

A lot of those places give it to pig farmers or sell it to them at cost just to get rid if it!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

The milk companies take it back and give us credit for the outdated!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

They repackage it as "Organic Milk" and sell it at Trader Joe's!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

They turn in into cottage cheese or sour cream!. !. !. !. LOLWww@FoodAQ@Com
