Dairy sees glass bottle sales surge #glassmilkmovement

In some areas, the increase has been by more than 8 per cent.

 

The news follows media reports of the impact of single use plastic on the environment, and the Prime Minister’s pledge to scrap all ‘avoidable plastic waste’ by 2042.

 

It has led to greater awareness of pollution of the environment including rivers and seas and thereby plastics entering the human-food-chain.

Managing director Tony Baldwin said: “Consumer awareness continues to grow week-by-week and customers are phoning and contacting the website requesting milk deliveries in glass bottles.”

 

Distributors

 

Hanover Dairies, founded in 1976 by owner Trevor Hanover, was one of the UK’s largest doorstep milk distributors supplying milk to 200 door-step delivery rounds.

 

“Our customers are ditching the use of single-use plastic milk containers and switching to glass.

 

“Hanover Dairies and our independent door-step delivery rounds-holders are picking-up hundreds of new customers every week.

 

“Greater consumer awareness has led to a resurgence in the sale of milk in the traditional glass bottle as well as, increasing door-step deliveries. “
