DairyLink work with local farmers/processors/distributors delivering milk to schools/public sector/private nurseries around the UK. We source/support many small local independent businesses by including them in the large tender opportunities that we submit. Many of these small businesses would not be able to access these opportunities if they were not part of our supply chain and this helps to sustain their business/local economy/community.
We work with caterers in schools/universities etc., and have, in the past, taken them to visit farms/dairies as well as doing promotional activities at their schools/kitchens. We provide sponsorship annually as part of the SHEP (Schools Healthy Eating Project) in Wales, the Holiday Hunger programme around the UK funded 6 schools in Luton for the cookery project (The Food Teacher) and 2 children in Liverpool to go on a school trip.
We are a responsible supplier, striving every day to ensure we source environmentally friendly products/packaging to minimize any negative impact on the environment.
We are members of LACA, LEAF (Linking the Environment and Farming), donate monthly to GWCT (Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust) and advertise in the TUCO framework publication to support our member customers. We donate to Save the Children, NSPCC, Great Ormond Street Hospital. Children are the core of our business, and we are very passionate about their health/wellbeing.
Our staff are trained to the Food Safety Level 2 accreditation which is of added benefit our customers. We are STS accredited. We were finalists some years ago in the GO Awards for Public Excellence in Procurement in the Initiative/Innovation category.
For myself, I have been chosen as a winner in the recent NatWest/Getty Images Marketing Campaign as one of only 15 businesses in the UK owned by a woman and am also a finalist in the NatWest Everywoman Awards to be Announced in December 2021.
