People from Norrland are the most milk drinking in Sweden. This is shown in a survey from Norrmejerier on Swedish milk consumption.

Milk is widely used for both coffee and cooking, but in Sweden it is also a popular drink. In a recent survey, carried out by the research company Norstat, 6 out of 10 from Norrland in Sweden state that they mainly buy milk to drink it. This makes them the most milk-thirsty population in the country. In comparison only 3 out of 10 Stockholmers said, that they buy milk to drink it.

– The Norlanders’ preference for milk as a drink with a meal is fantastic and, in many ways, unique. Although milk has more uses, it is pleasing that milk still is a popular drink in Norrland.

In the survey, 7 out of 10 northerners answer that they think it is important to buy a farmer-owned brand – and not just the cheapest alternative.
