First Milk, the UK’s only major dairy company owned by British family farms, has agreed a new long-term contract with Nestlé UK & Ireland. First Milk has supplied fresh British milk to Nestlé UK & Ireland since 2003, in a relationship that has focused on building a long term sustainable supply chain for Nestlé’s confectionery and beverage businesses.

Mike Gallacher, chief executive of First Milk, comments: “Nestlé are a hugely important customer for First Milk and I am delighted to see this relationship renewed for the long term. Nestlé have consistently supported British Dairy farmers and are at the forefront of driving best practice on responsible sourcing and sustainability. Initiatives like our Next Generation Young Farmer Program demonstrate a long term and strategic commitment to the UK supply chain.”

Mike Gallacher, chief executive of First Milk.

Robin Sundaram, Responsible Sourcing Lead – Milk Buyer at Nestlé UK & Ireland, says: “Good quality milk is a key ingredient in some of our iconic brands such as Nescafe and KitKat. We look forward to continuing our strategic long-term partnership to drive our vision of supporting our farmers and our environment.”

First Milk supplies the retail, foodservice and milk markets with a wide range of dairy products and ingredients, in the UK and internationally.

First Milk is currently pursuing a new strategy focused on its core business of Liquid Milk Contract supply and Cheddar manufacturing. This has resulted in a £30 million improvement in profitability over the last two years. At the same time the business has been able to step up its milk price to members, fuelled by the transformation in the business performance.
