Milk delivery companies are making a big comeback in the UK. If you are keen on eating healthier you should consider hiring one of them to deliver milk at your door – theirs is usually fresh, locally sourced and organic. You however need to choose your milk delivery company carefully – not all of them are as good as they claim to be. Here is what you should take into account:
• Find out where the company sources its milk. The best ones get it from nearby farms because that way they don’t have to transport it for long, which allows it to arrive fresh at your door. Also, if they are sourcing locally it means they are helping support the local economy.
• Hygiene is very important when it comes to milk delivery – you should choose a company that takes the necessary precautions from milking until delivery. They should sterilize all the bottles that they collect from their rounds before they reuse them and use fresh caps on them every time. The bottles should ideally be made of glass – it doesn’t degrade over time like plastic.
• There are some milk delivery companies that deliver more than just milk – they also deliver things like bread, cakes, biscuits, butter, cheese, jams, fruits, vegetables and more. This is helpful as it means you don’t have to go to the shop as often.
• Find out whether the milk and other foods that they deliver is organic – some companies source from farms that use chemical fertilizers and you don’t want that.
One Cambridgeshire milk delivery company that does a stellar job every time is Plumbs Dairy. They have been in the business for more than 60 years and residents in the area have come to rely on them for milk and other food deliveries.
