Frequently Asked Doorstep Questions 

  • Why are the glass milk bottle foil tops different colours to the plastic bottles?
    The glass bottle foil tops are different from poly bottles, simply because glass bottles existed first and the foil tops have not changed over the years. Most glass suppliers of milk are still using the traditional colour scheme for the foil tops which are silver for whole milk, red for semi-skimmed, blue for skimmed and gold for Channel Island. When the grocery stores came along and the poly bottle was introduced, the grocery stores decided that they were going to use blue for whole milk, green for semi-skimmed and red for skimmed. Although this did not match what was done in the glass milk market, the grocery stores decided that this was how they were going to do it. In order to supply to grocery stores and shops, milk suppliers now colour code the same as the grocery stores for their poly bottles in order to not confuse customers.
  • What days can I order products on?
    When you become a doorstep customer you will be advised of what your delivery days are. They are typically Monday, Wednesday and Friday or Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

  • What sort of account do I need to use Direct Debit?
    Most current accounts at Banks or Building Societies can be used to make Direct Debit payments. Some special deposit accounts now allow them too, just ask at your branch.

    Yes. Instructions can be cancelled by contacting your Bank or Building Society. Please send a copy of the cancellation letter to us.
  • What if I have insuffcient funds in my account for a Direct Debit?
