It says there are 8 grams of fat in a 240 ml serving. Milk weighs about 1 gram/ml, so the milk in the picture is about 3.3% milk fat.

Thank you

Cant work with Weight x Volume so
1 cup = 236.5 m.l. = 244Grams ... Close enough
What times or divided what equals 3.3

The 12% refers to the percentage of a person's daily value of fats as a total in their diet. NOT the percentage of fat in the milk.

If you re-check the label, the serving size is 240ml and there are 8g of fat in that serving. Grams are roughly equivalent to ml in water based liquids (1.05g/ml) so 8 divided by 240 = 3.3% fat.
