Meet the Sales Team

A wealth of experience and expertise

We understand dairy and as the UK’s leading independent dairy group, we have unrivalled market knowledge and expertise throughout our business.

Our commercial team consists of seven experienced UK-based professionals, each with a wealth of knowledge, insight and experience in the dairy sector, as well as the food industry as a whole.

We use this experience to work closely with food manufacturers and our foodservice customers to give them advice, technical guidance or insight into the UK dairy and world milk markets, as well as providing current trends and changing regulation in the sector.

We love to work in partnership with our customers so we can help them make informed purchasing decisions to ensure a quality and reliable supply throughout the year.
