B & A Dairies ltd is run by both Richard King & Jason Sawbridge both are active Managing Directors in the day to day business needs of the Company and both carry equal status.
I have been involved in the doorstep and wholesale dairy business since my school days which now credits me with nearly 40 years experience, I first started working at Quinney’s Dairies in Coventry Street back in the late 70’s early 80’s moving onto Country Farm Dairies in Parrots Grove. During the mid-90’s the owner of Country Farm Dairy “Alan Whitcroft” reached his planned retirement age and myself along with 3 others formed B&A Dairies. All these partners have now retired and have no further interest in B&A just leaving myself & Jason.
The dairy business has changed considerably over the last 10 to 15 years with the introduction of online account management and I believe that B&A were the first independent dairy Company in the UK to offer online payments many other companies have followed our lead some more successfully than others. We constantly monitor our business and continually look to improve our service but never divert from our core value being customer service. We still today offer the same basic home delivery service of yester year being daily delivers of milk in glass bottle and weekly collections of monies if requested.
During my 15 years with B&A Dairies Ltd, both as a roundsman and company director, B&A has managed to retain the traditional service that customers have received for many years, as well as moving with the times. The introduction of our website many years ago with its numerous functionalities, has helped us meet the needs of all our customers. With the release of the new website, we continue to evolve and improve.
Our new premises in Quinn close have helped us expand and given us the freedom to work with our suppliers to provide our customers with highest quality products.
I am proud to be part of a company that has kept its traditional values, but is also keen to bring the service to a new generation of customers that may not have been aware of that the milkman is still a big part of the dairy industry.
