Steve Tatham, owner of Portland Dairies also delivers the products himself to ensure exceptional service to his customers. 

Starting as a 10-year-old milk boy, Steve went on to become a milkman in various areas throughout Lancashire and Greater Manchester. He then became a Senior Manager for large dairy companies throughout England and was instrumental in their expansion and success. He's now come full circle and returned to his roots serving the local household and small businesses in the community - an area very close to his heart. 

Steve has extensive knowledge within the Dairy and Logistics industry and started the business after noticing customer service provided by larger companies had become poor due to complacency, and they lost sight that the customer comes first. He noticed the decline in value for the personal touch of knowing your customers, their needs and requirements and doing what you can to meet those needs. This being the case, Portland Dairies are aware of how to provide first-class service and will always attempt to fulfil any sales requests.

We all need your support.

You may have noticed in the press recently about another large dairy company announcing that they will be bringing to an end the supply of milk in glass bottles to their customers and more recently the announcement that they will soon be selling out to the German firm Mullers, who also bought another large dairy company not so long ago and will now have the majority of supermarket milk tied up in the UK.
We want to assure all of our customers and anyone wishing to place an order with us that Portland Dairies have no plans to follow suit and we will continue to supply our fresh British milk to customers' homes and businesses the way we always have, in eco-friendly reusable glass bottles as well as the plastic bottles and other range of products.

Please do all you can to keep this great tradition going and support your local small independent dairies who have been keeping the British public supplied with local fresh milk and dairy products for the last 150 years.
