Note from ADA North East Regarding Milk Sale Limits at Retail Locations

A note from Beth Meyer, Director of Consumer Confidence at American Dairy Association North East:

Hi all - I've seen there's been a lot of discussion on stores limiting milk and dairy product purchases. ADA North East has been working at the retail level in a couple of key ways over the last few weeks.

When the initial run on dairy took place, our retail team worked directly with stores to help stock the dairy cases, to help ensure that product was out and available for shoppers. At that time, many stores had posted limits on could be purchased (on dairy and many other items that were flying off the shelves - bread, eggs, meat, cleaning supplies and toilet paper, to name a few). Over the last week or so, the initial rush on stores and people doing large stock-up shopping trips has decreased. This week our team has contacted the major chains in our market area (representing around 1,400 stores) who have confirmed that their corporate offices have lifted the limitations on milk. They will continue to assist stores in enhancing retail sales as long as possible under these current conditions.

How you can help: If you see a store that is still limiting milk sales, please take a picture, note the location, date and time and send to Beth Meyer ( so we can work with the chain to rectify the situation. 

Thank you!
