Our food guide Heather brought us to see this innovative little project. At various roadside stops in Lucca province are mysterious cabins like the one above.
Inside is a fridge, filled daily (we hope) with fresh biological milk by a local organic dairy farmer.
Customers bring their own bottles, or buy a reusable plastic one from the dispenser, put coins in the slot and out comes the milk. You don’t have to buy a full bottle – you only get and pay for what you need.
This is an excellent system, we thought, which could well be emulated in other parts of the world, perhaps with other products too.
