Dairy UK is celebrating the great British tradition of doorstep delivery by recognising the outstanding milkmen and women who have gone above and beyond the call of duty on their milk rounds.

Every day, thousands of milkmen and women deliver milk, dairy products and much more to loyal customers across the country. Not only do these men and women deliver milk and household essentials, but they also are active members of the community.

Dairy UK is therefore looking for the next Milk Heroes who deserve to be rewarded for their dedication to the community and is calling on all its members to nominate outstanding milkmen and women for a Milk Hero award.

Previous winners of the award have rescued elderly customers, alerted the authorities to fires, thwarted burglaries and car thefts and been involved in a whole range of meritorious acts that have benefited customers and the local community.

Dr Judith Bryans, Chief Executive of Dairy UK, said: “Our milkmen and women are an important part of the community, and they willingly go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure the safety of our neighbourhoods and the wellbeing of the community.

“Dairy UK is delighted to be bringing back the Milk Heroes award in recognition of our outstanding milkmen and women.”

Milkmen and women nominated for a Milk Hero award must be Dairy UK members, employed by and/or a franchisee of a Dairy UK member. Nominees can be employed roundsmen/women, BMBs and franchisees.

Nominations should be submitted by completing the Milk Heroes form which is available for download from the Dairy UK website at or by contacting Dairy UK on 0207 405 1484 or
