Our products and packaing.

Our dairy partner has been putting milk in glass bottles since 1938 and these are collected from our customers and washed, sterilized, and reused around 30 times before being recycled and made into new glass bottles. We encourage all our Doorstep customers to choose glass and we work with local schools, businesses, and cafes to reduce their single-use plastic by getting their milk delivered in glass bottles. We also encourage this through being part of the local ‘Plastic Free Cheltenham’ initiative. We also offer other products in glass, such as fruit juice, milkshakes, and water.

When glass is not an option for businesses we try to encourage the use of a pergal machine, which is a milk dispensing machine that can hold up to 40 pints of milk, thus reducing plastic waste.

The other main source of product packaging is poly bottles which are 100% recyclable. In the UK poly bottles are recycled in a closed-loop meaning that the bottle you put in the recycling bin can be made into a new plastic bottle. The labels are washed off the bottle during the recycling process and are sent with other non-recyclable items for EFW (Energy From Waste).

Transportation.

We’re working towards making our transportation as sustainable as possible to reduce our carbon footprint and our fleet emissions.

Including:

  • Using electric milk floats to deliver to our doorstep customers for over 70 years and here possible, we use electric over non-electric floats.
  • New refrigeration units for our curtain lorries that are top of the line in the industry and are 35% more efficient than alternative options on the market.
  • Implemented a strict collection policy to ensure we recover obtain, where possible, all glass bottles and returnable delivery items such as cages, crates, and pallets so we can reuse them.
  • Telematics in our fleet ensure we are taking the most efficient route. Our drivers are trained to drive as economically as possible.

Supporting local farms

We work with local farmers to reduce our food miles and support the farming industry in the areas in which we operate. All of our farms are within a 60-mile radius of our production site in Tewkesbury and our Conventional Farmers, which make up 65% of our milk output, are within a 30 miles radius.

We require all of our farmers to have Red Tractor Certification as well as other certifications where applicable, such as Organic Certification for Organic milk. These certifications have strict environmental rules that our farmers abide by to ensure that the environmental impact of farming is kept to a minimum. To maintain this certification our farmers are regularly audited to ensure they comply and that there is a high level of animal welfare on the farms.

Waste management

We adhere to a duty of care, code of practice for all wastes we produce. We only work with licensed and certified companies to collect, transport, and process waste. We also ensure that they keep records of our waste activity for monitoring and accountability purposes which we measure against the UK dairy sector along with our water, electricity, and gas usage per litre of milk.
