We’re a co-operative owned by the farmers who supply us
At our heart, we have around 700 farming families spread across Britain who believe that working together creates a brighter future for everyone. We’re passionate about the power of dairy to make a difference, whether that’s providing tasty, nutritious and affordable food, building strong rural communities or leaving the world a better place.
We’re a co-operative owned by the farmers who supply the milk, invest capital and are members and co-owners of the business. We have around 220 colleagues working across our production sites and head office functions. Our creameries are in the beautiful Lake District and near the stunning Pembrokeshire coast, where we produce award-winning cheese and whey powders, including custom-made products to meet specific customer needs.
Whilst delivering competitive returns is key, being part of First Milk also provides farmers with security and stability, allowing them to plan for the future and develop their farming business for the next generation.
