Dairy farmers arrived from across the country to demonstrate in the parking lot of a Tesco store in Budaörs, in an attempt to raise awareness that the price of raw milk continues to drop beyond a sustainable level.

The current HUF 69 per liter buying price puts Hungary in 26th place in the European Union, while the manufacturing price of one liter of raw milk exceeds HUF 100.
