Enriching life every day to secure the future

First Milk

First Milk is a wholly British farmer-owned dairy co-operative with a vision of enriching life every day to secure the future.

Owned by the family farms that supply us with milk and invest capital in the business, we produce award-winning cheddar, regional cheeses and dairy ingredients, as well as marketing fresh raw milk to many other UK dairy processors.

We work together as one team, with a relentless focus on efficiency and quality, to deliver competitive total returns to our farmer members. We put customers at the heart of our business, creating value through strong, long-term partnerships.
