Milk & More sustainability


​​​​​​​Our Sustainability Policy

At Milk & More, we are passionate about encouraging people to eat well and live sustainably. We do this by championing smaller suppliers who we trust to provide the very best products for us to deliver to your doorstep.

Our mission is to deliver a positive impact on local communities, the environment and ultimately you. Deeply rooted as a British icon, we strive to continue both the milkman legacy and its expansion.

Sustainability, including social, environment, economic and supplier aspects, is critical to us delivering on our aims, and embedding sourcing and operating in a sustainable manner is a core activity in the business.

We will:

  • Focus on providing products to our customers that help enhance their lives sustainably.
  • Understand and reduce our environmental impacts, including carbon, water, plastic and waste
  • Work to reduce the impacts when transporting our products to our customers
  • Ensure we are an ethical employer who follows the requirements of the ETI Base code
  • Implement animal welfare standards for our suppliers
  • Work with and support our supply chain to reduce impacts and promote sustainable business practice
