MILK in glass bottles could be back on the breakfast table as leading organic milk producer Daioni Organic rolls out a scheme to put traditional bottled milk back on the shelves.

In a post on its Facebook page the company, based in Boncath, says:

"Not only are they nostalgic but buying milk in reusable glass bottles actively helps reduce plastic consumption and the amount of plastic that ends up in our oceans and landfills.

"Although all of our packaging is recyclable and we actively encourage recycling we are very pleased to be able to offer this sustainable alternative on our milk round."

The bottles are being made available to a growing number of stores and outlets in the area.

The brand’s humble beginnings began with a 150-acre farm in north Pembrokeshire, Wales when current owner Laurence Harris's mother and father started rearing dairy cows at Ffosyficer Farm in 1946.

Since taking over Ffosyficer farm – still the heart of the Daioni business – from his father in 1970, Laurence expanded the family farm to well over 3,000 acres of fertile pasture. This provides all the home-grown grass and grain necessary to feed the Daioni Organic cows.

In 1999, the farm was converted to organic production. In the same year, Laurence launched the Daioni Organic Brand and started selling a suite of quality organic dairy products. With growing demand for organic dairy around the world, Daioni Organic commenced export in 2012.

Today its products are sold throughout the United Kingdom and exported to mainland China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Vietnam and the United Arab Emirates.
