The Modern Milkman started with four friends, one beat up truck, and a mission - to create a purpose driven business that revolutionises consumer habits by delivering fresh ways to reduce waste. We’ve grown a lot since we first began (goodbye beat up truck!). Our team is full of passionate and ambitious individuals, ready to revolutionize consumer habits in new and exciting ways. When you work with us, you’ll discover it’s truly a team effort, and you’ll find yourself collaborating with different departments on a daily basis. But don’t worry, we don’t take ourselves too seriously – where’s the fun in that?
Sure we’ve been selected as one of Northwest Business Insider's Most Exciting Companies, but as of June 2022, we’ve saved over 45,000,000 plastic bottles going to landfill. Now that’s something to celebrate!
Saint David Attenborough (as we call him) inspired us to set up a local milkround in Colne, Lancashire, in 2018. We'd been watching BBC's Blue Planet and were shocked by the amount of plastic in our oceans. A traditional milkround with reusable glass bottles seemed like an obvious way to reduce this problem. Why has no one thought of it before!
We've grown from four friends and a beat-up truck to a network of milkmen and women (eco-warriors on earlies) supplied by local dairies. We've also expanded our return and reuse range and incorporated the latest mobile tech to make ordering easy. New customers are joining our fight against plastic waste every day, and we're just getting started.
