First Milk

Owned by British family farms, First Milk produce the highest quality dairy products with a commitment to enrich life every day to secure the future. Through the strong, collaborative relationships between their farmers, colleagues and partners, First Milk knows they can be regenerative – future-proofing their soil, farms, creameries and communities and making first-rate dairy products whilst they are at it.

Regeneration is a way of thinking. For First Milk, it’s about positively impacting the world we live in, whilst producing nutritious, tasty dairy products to feed a growing population. As a co-operative business, this starts with their farmers, who follow regenerative farming practices. But it is so much more than that.

Regenerative thinking extends throughout the business, through their colleagues and external relationships, resulting in a shared commitment to nourishing the earth and future generations. Doing the right thing is at First Milk’s core, and they are proud to be a Certified B Corporation, demonstrating how dairy can be a force for good.

They produce a fantastic range of great-tasting Cheddar, Red Leicester and Double Gloucester cheese. They also make specialist dairy ingredients and whey proteins to deliver functional and nutritious products for the modern consumer and focus on providing high quality, traceable fresh milk to a range of dairy manufacturers and food processors across the UK.

First Milk are predominantly a B2B business, and work with many customers as their long-term supply partner, helping them to deliver their objectives through responsible sourcing and supply chain management services. They work with some of the leading businesses in the dairy and food sector.
