Supermarkets have sacrificed our planet for bloated supply chains, drawn-out shelf lives and plastic packaging. But inspired by David Attenborough, we’ve rebooted the milkround to kick waste’s a**.
The Modern Milkman has grown from four mates and a beat-up truck into delivering plastic free groceries to thousands of doorsteps across the country. But this is just the beginning.
Hear from Simon, our CEO and Co-Founder, on what drives our passion for the planet, and discover how you can grow with us on the way to a waste-free future.
After four delicious years of growth, we’d love you to join the journey

Crowdcube makes it easy to invest in high-growth businesses, whether you’re an experienced investor or just starting out.
Good question! Equity crowdfunding is an opportunity for a broad range of investors (aka the crowd) to invest in private companies who aren’t listed on the stock exchange. The process allows individuals to buy shares in the company, and if the company performs well, returns on investment (ROI) are typically made when it is bought by another company, or via a liquidity event - e.g. an IPO (when a private company first sells stock shares to the public). It’s important to be aware, however, that if the company fails, anyone who’s invested through crowdfunding can lose some, or all, of their investment.
But of course! We’re very grateful for your support and will reward people who commit to certain levels of investment. Head to our Crowdcube page to read about our investor rewards.
