    I've seen camel meat in the supermarket, which I assume comes from the wild herds in Australia...... no milk yet though

    If you want a camelatte or a camelchino here in Aus, it cannot be done.

    Australia's wild camel population is the biggest in the world, with over 500,000 in central Australia.

    While some camel meat is harvested and live camels are exported there is no local milk industry.

    There is plenty of milk in the wild camels but none in the shops.

    sounds like a good opportunity there for someone to create an export market!

    In the article the taste description was: "nutty, smoky, slightly Bratwursty flavour"
    I would like to know how much of those flavours were in the milk and how much was in the roast (sounds like a dodgy roast too me).

    My first thought was UAE to Europe... that's a lot of "air miles" and expensive freight if it's fresh milk, slightly less expensive if its UHT.
