Philip & Catherine Colton started West Horsley Dairy in 1992 from their then home in the Surrey village of West Horsley. Both coming from farming backgrounds, their aim then as it remains today, was to deliver a higher quality of service and product than their competitors were providing.
Through adhering to the company ethos of ‘Delivering Excellence’ the company has grown from a local village dairy to a respected foodservice company, with a large modern fleet of over forty refrigerated vehicles and nearly one hundred employees.
West Horsley Dairy has achieved BRC Accreditation, Red Tractor Distributor Accreditation, Soil Association Accreditation and Transport For London FORS Gold Accreditation.
In July 2015 we received the Association of Catering Excellence- ACE Sustains Corporate Award for our work with our Hybrid vehicle.We now have 5 hybrid vehicles in our fleet.
Our Sales Office is open from 7.30am until 7.30pm and is manned by an experienced team of sales operators. An answerphone service then operates so orders can be placed up to 11pm for next day delivery. Senior Managers mobile numbers are available for out of hours contact.
Philip & Catherine are dedicated to supporting British farming and to this end work with as many like minded producers as possible. All the non organic fresh milk and cream we supply comes from Red Tractor Assured farms. By using Red Tractor producers we can guarantee that all the milk supplied is from UK farms and that the producers are meeting high standards of food safety, hygiene, animal welfare and environmental protection.
We are accredited by the Soil Association for selling and marketing a number of organic products including organic milk.
We also work with over 25 small food producers throughout the South East of England to provide a quality range of cheeses, chutneys and yogurts.
