We set off in October 2018 as a group of four friends with an idea. After watching David Attenborough’s Blue Planet II, we knew there was more that we could do to get people using less plastic. Surely people would want to match convenience with reusable packaging? So we bought our local milkround, and 100 customers, and took it in turns to deliver milk before going to our day jobs.
We are all passionately committed to supporting local producers and to sustainability. We knew that for the milkround to work in today’s world, it needed to be super convenient too, so we took it online with our website and App. Now we deliver to thousands of homes every 48 hours, across Leeds, Greater Manchester and East Lancashire, and what’s more you can order by 8pm for delivery by 7.30am the next morning.
Our innovation has revolutionised the traditional milkround and provided a market to connect consumers directly with the farm gate and producers. Sustainability is key for us, in terms of reducing food miles, supporting local economies and preventing packaging waste. We reuse packaging and we are a single-use plastic free grocery service.
We’re constantly developing our range of single use plastic free groceries, because we’re much more than just a milkman.
