A pillar of society and a true Milk Hero… Congratulations Ian.

Environmental Efforts

We care about the environment and are taking steps to become more eco-friendly and sustainable for the good of the communities we serve.

We are also working with our suppliers to make sure our packaging is as sustainable and environmentally friendly as possible, helping our customers to live more environmentally conscious lives conveniently.

Community Commitment

We're proud to say our milkmen have become an integral part of local communities across Britain. That's why we are opening this year's annual Milkman of the Year award, to give our customers a chance to show their gratitude for any milk man or woman that really went over and above the line of duty this year. 

We are also running extra community projects around the UK. This year, our Grass to Glass project helped to not only teach children about the role of the milkman, but to also encourage a healthy lifestyle using the freshly delivered produce. Find out more about the grass to glass project.
