A listed company of natural foods, Farmers Union Iced Coffee, is currently owned by a company called Bega Dairy and drinks. Launched in 1977, when the farmers union was a part of South Australian Dairy farms, the brand quickly became popular and is now also available in many parts of the world. If you live in Australia, you'll know about Farmers Union Iced Coffee. It's a delicious milk-based drink served coffee. Made in Australia and primary in the state of South Australia, it used to be sold under the name of "farmers Union" which was initially a South Australian cooperative. Predominantly sold as iced coffee, the coffee milk is made with coffee, glucose, and milk solids. Earlier it used to have iced confection as an ingredient, but it isn't included anymore, and hence product has considerably changed in taste. Since the interest and popularity for the drink rose, in 2003, Australians consumed 22 million liters of this iced coffee, making it the best-selling flavored milk at the time. Many chain restaurants like Mcdonald's and KFC are also beginning to select as a part of their menu. At one point in 2008, it outsold Coca-Cola at a ratio of almost 3:1. It's the only milk drink anywhere in the world to outsell Coca-Cola and is now available nationally in Australia. So since its launch, it's been made and sold in Australia itself.
