Medina Dairy’s vision is to be the leading independent national supplier of liquid milk, dairy and bakery products to the full spectrum of UK retailers, wholesalers and food service operators.
The business was originally started in 1980 by Sardar Hussain and his family and in 1992 Medina Dairy Ltd was established to focus on the supply of milk and bread operating from depots across London and Birmingham.
In 2003 we started a Food Service operation supplying a range of chilled and ambient food products to national accounts and the catering & hospitality sector. The business continued to grow and in 2004 Medina bought our first milk processing unit, Watsons Dairy near Southampton. In 2007 we acquired further processing capacity at Denby Dale Dairy near Huddersfield. From this strong base the business continued to grow and we are now a major dairy with depots throughout London, the Midlands, the North, the South and Wales.
From 2016 our existing fresh milk production facilities will be complemented by Medina’s securing of an agreement to process an additional 100 million litres of milk per annum at the Severnside dairy.
As such, today we have the scale, capability and passion to meet the needs of, and add value to, our customers’ businesses. We are focused on working in partnership through offering a fast, flexible and personal service to customers of all sizes, whether at a national or local level.
We can deliver, when and where customers need, a comprehensive choice of high quality fresh products. From our great tasting Watsons and Cymru milk branded and retailer own label milks & creams, produced using milk sourced from our own dedicated group of over 140 British farm-assured dairy farmers, through to two of the nation’s favourite brands of bread in Hovis & Kingsmill.
Utilising our Grade A, British Retail Consortium accredited dairy processing facilities, strong relationships with other leading food producers and comprehensive network of distribution centres, delivery vehicles and experienced staff, we deliver on a just-in-time basis a range of over 400 products to some 5,000 locations nationwide. This includes delivering four million litres of fresh milk, over one million loaves of bread and one million eggs every week.
Giving to charities and orphanages is an important aspect of our business. We have funded a range of programmes primarily focused on improving the health, education and welfare of people in the community. We fully fund and assist in the management of orphanages across Kashmir and are very proud to have assisted about 500 children to date.
