Our Founder Harry Workman purchased a 30-gallon milk round on May 1st 1938, 80 years on we are now one of the largest independent dairies in the UK. The business has grown by the hard work and dedication of the Workman family and team of loyal workforce and they continue to adhere to Harry’s core values of ‘Quality, Service and Cleanliness’.
Back in the early days, the milk was processed by a handful of people and delivered to the doorsteps around Tewkesbury in a Morris 8 van. Now employing over 350 staff and with depots in Cheltenham, North Wales and Shrewsbury, as well as the main processing site in Tewkesbury, the company continues to produce high-quality milk and cream products delivered efficiently and reliably to a loyal customer base.
Currently, the dairy processes around 250,000 litres per milk every day and prides itself on the quality of the products, which is due to the long term partnerships which have been forged and maintained with the local farmers from which the raw milk is sourced and to the dedication and loyalty of their staff.
To mark the occasion, the staff and family members enjoyed a celebration at the local family business Tewkesbury Park Hotel. Local companies have been very generous in raffle prizes and monies raised were donated to Air Ambulance. We also commissioned a picture from local cow artist Sam Morris.
We also supported 80 charities to celebrate our 80 years which included donations of products, money from our tuck shop and hampers of goods.
