First Milk is a British dairy farmer-owned co-operative that’s proud to be a Certified B Corp.

At its heart, it has around 700 farming families spread across Britain who believe that working together creates a brighter future for everyone.

First Milk is a co-operative owned by the farmers who supply the milk, invest capital and are members and co-owners of the business. It has around 220 colleagues working across its production sites and head office functions. Its creameries are in the beautiful Lake District and near the stunning Pembrokeshire coast, where it produces award-winning cheese and whey powders, including custom-made products to meet specific customer needs.

Whilst delivering competitive returns is key, being part of First Milk also provides farmers with security and stability.

First Milk has chosen to implement regenerative farming principles across its farms to reduce net greenhouse gas emissions and improve watercourse protection, nutrient cycling, enhance biodiversity and enable farming to become part of the climate solution.
