Direct Milk is the leading dairy supplier when it comes to sustainability. With a 40kw solar power system installed in 2019 and all lighting replaced with LEDs we have reduced our electricity consumption by over half.
All our vehicles are to the highest emission standards, including our hybrid lorry with its fridge powered by the solar from our panels.
