Online shopping? Been there, done that.

There seems to be a feeling at the moment that online shopping has revolutionised peoples lives, and perhaps it has.

One fact remains, however – savvy consumers have been having their essential groceries and fresh foods delivered to their door each day for years!

Long before the first computer whirred into life, milkmen cheerfully clanked their bottles, delivering not just milk, but also bread, cheese, fruit juice and much more to their grateful customers.

Some people simply like to have fresh produce each day – some may be elderly and infirm, regardless, the cheery milkman has brightened the day of many people’s lives, and will continue to do so for many years to come.

If you’re lucky enough to be the proud owner of the latest iPad or 3g mobile super device, then you can order a regular delivery by simply contacting us – if you don’t have the latest tech, don’t worry, a simple phonecall to 0161 483 5055 has the old-fashioned advantage of letting you speak to a human being. A bit like having that nice milkman calling in fact!

Jackson’s Dairy – a Potted History

Jackson’s Dairies was established in the 1950’s by Margaret and Alfred Jackson.

In 2007 the company sought their own supplies; buying a tanker and negotiating with farmers in the Peak District.

Jackson’s Dairies delivers 200,000 bottles of milk each month to the North West and as far south as Birmingham.

Recycle your bottle tops!

Recycled bottle tops provide over 70g of aluminium foil per year for every daily pint of milk delivered; equal to about 5 aluminium drinks cans.

Milk bottles are reused an average of 13 times before recycling.

Research shows that 81% of people agree that people have a duty to recycle.

Milk’s heath benefits

An average glass of milk gives you almost a third of your daily calcium requirement.

3 servings of fresh milk per day may help reduce the risk of osteoporosis, high blood pressure and colon cancer.

Milk is one of the most nutrient-dense foods, containing calcium, protein, potassium, vitamin A and vitamin B12.

British Doorstep Milk Delivery

British milk bottles were first delivered in 1880; four times a day, by horse-drawn carts.

Doorstep delivery is becoming increasingly popular, especially for busy families.

Buying your milk this way ensures a constant supply of fresh milk, helping eliminate breakfast tears and tantrums.

Before milk bottles, milkmen directly filled the jugs of customers.

The National Association of Milk Bottle Collectors provides research and information about milk bottles.

Advertisements began to appear on milk bottles in the 1920 and used sand-blasting techniques to etch them on the glass.
