Dairy is a really important category for retailers.


Did you know that 25p in every pound spent on fresh and chilled groceries is on dairy?


And 31p on every pound spent is on milk?

Milk is the largest category in dairy and is 500% bigger than tea.


It is a great category to be in.

So we have a big responsibility to meet this demand and ensure that fridges remain stocked.

There are three areas where we can show real competitive advantage.

1. Partnering excellence: helping our customers to succeed in the sector.

2. Cost leadership: leveraging our scale to ensure our competitiveness.

3. Profitable growth: focused partnership working with major customers to unlock growth and innovation.


Here are some specific examples of our expertise in these areas.

Security of supply - resilient, progressive partners

Cows in field

Did you know we buy a fifth of all milk produced on Britain’s farms?

We’re pioneering new ways of thinking to ensure a sustainable future milk supply.


We offer consistently better quality milk. Versus the total GB pool, in 2018, MMI’s milk had, on average, 25% lower Bactoscan results and 6% lower SSC results


We are incentivising up to 600 Müller Direct farmers in Britain to participate in Müller Advantage.

This programme provides supplying farmers  with the tools and support that they need to address a range of issues that are important for our consumers and customers. 

Müller Advantage aims to help dairy farmers not only operate successful and progressive enterprises, but proactively address areas like supply chain collaboration, herd health, responsible sourcing and reductions in environmental impact.

Müller Direct farmers are already in line with the RUMA 2020 industry-wide antimicrobial targets (21mg/PCU), with further improvements expected this year.


We test and pay farmers based on thermoduric bacteria.


Measures are in place to help farmers reduce their exposure to market volatility including fixed price and futures contracts which act to smooth returns.

We've adapted that network, so that we can protect security of supply across five modern, efficient and state of the art-dairies.

We have multiple other programmes across our network to reduce energy, carbon, waste and water usage.


Many of our dairies have installed reverse osmosis systems to recycle water, achieving 50% reuse.

The leading plastics proposition

We are leading the way when it comes to offering our customers a leading plastics proposition.


We're unique in that we've acquired the capability to make our own fresh milk packaging.


This gives us the control to innovate.


Our fresh and flavoured milk bottles are already 100% recyclable, and we’ve removed 10,000 tonnes of plastic from milk bottles since 2016.


We’ve forward secured appropriate supplies of recycled HDPE, and this allows up to 40% of the plastic in our fresh milk bottles to be made from recycled material.


We’re going even further, and removed a further 840 tonnes of plastic p/a via lightweighting of our bottles and caps in 2019.

So how do we add recycled material into our fresh milk bottles?


Plastic is re-processed through a shredder.

The shredded plastic is then broken down into small flakes, washed and then cleaned. It is then re-pelletised to add required density.

Alongside virgin material, it is then blended with rHDPE to create mix of materials that are required to make a bottle.

rHDPE bottles are then cooled on the way to a trimmer which removes excess plastic. This waste material is then added back into the process.

Completed bottles are gathered, ready to be sent to dairy filler.

Empty bottles are then transferred to the dairy filler.

Completed rHDPE bottle, which is 100% recyclable, is filled with milk.

We were also the first dairy company in the UK to offer fresh school milk with paper straws.
