Freshways has grown rapidly since its simple beginnings as a small wholesaler in 1990. By providing excellent service, it rapidly grew supplying milk and other dairy products to independent retailers and cafés.
The decision was taken that Freshways wanted to control the quality of its products and in 1999 moved to its current premises. The installation of a state of the art processing facility was completed in 2001 and since then Freshways has further grown from strength to strength to become the largest independent family run dairy in the country.
The ability to process allowed Freshways to move into different sectors of the dairy industry. We now supply milk and cream to many wholesalers and also manufacturers for use in various products found in multiples and high streets across the country.
Freshways also sources and supplies a wide range of own label and branded food including bread, yogurt, fruit juices, cheeses and eggs.
By choosing Freshways as your supplier you can be guaranteed to receive top quality service and products at competitive prices.
