The market is seeing a resurgence in interest from consumers moving towards more sustainable food buying.
Spotted: One of the UK’s leading home milk delivery companies recently introduced 200 electric milk floats to its fleet of vehicles.
Milk & More is one of the UK-based companies helping revive the environmentally friendly system of milk delivered to the door. In addition to milk, a range of drinks including cordials, squashes, juices and smoothies is now available in reusable or recyclable glass bottles.
Milk is the most valuable agricultural commodity worldwide, and in the UK, 96 per cent of adults buy milk. With only three per cent of the country’s fresh milk delivered to homes, the market has huge potential for growth. Milk & More provides delivery of more than 200 pantry, baked, home and dairy products. Delivery is free and scheduled to arrive before 7 am. Ordering is available online or via the Milk & More iOS and Android app.
For potential customers, Dairy UK, the British dairy supply chain trade association, provides the “Find Me A Milkman” service. Local farms and delivery companies are listed by distance to a postcode.
