Sydney (dpa) - Aldi has defended itself after the Australian government attacked it for failing to impose a surcharge on milk to help drought-stricken farmers, saying it had taken other steps.

The German-owned supermarket said in a statement it was supporting farmers during drought time by accepting price increases on the milk it purchased, but not passing those extra costs on to shoppers.

"Without a transparent, auditable and equitable process for funds collection and distribution, we believe that it would be irresponsible of Aldi to tax consumers on the purchase of milk," the statement read.

"Our firm preference is to support government-led industry reform, not short-term levies that could artificially alter market dynamics and have limited impact for those most in need."
