McQueens Dairies

This year's panto is sponsored locally by our friends at McQueens Dairies!

 

McQueens Dairies are a third-generation family firm who have been restoring the traditional doorstep milk delivery service for almost 3 decades.

It all started back in 1995 when Mick and Meg McQueen established a single milk route in St Andrews. More than 25 years later, the company has gradually expanded into new neighbourhoods and McQueens are now proud to deliver to hundreds of thousands of customers across the UK, delivering the same reliable, personal service that they did back in Fife all those years ago.

All the milk from McQueens own dairy is delivered by local drivers, serving and supporting local communities all across the UK.

McQueens Dairies provides an easy sign up milk delivery service from their own dairy, alongside a range of products that includes fruit juice, eggs, yoghurt, non-dairy milk alternatives and cream, all guaranteed for delivery before 7am. Milk is available in reusable, recyclable glass bottles and non-dairy alternatives including oat, soya, coconut, and lactose-free milks. Customers can choose convenient delivery days in their local area and have the flexibility to change their order at any time (e.g. holidays), helping customers save money and reduce waste.

McQueens also deliver milk to businesses and nurseries, as a registered agent of the Nursery Milk Scheme, which provides free milk to nurseries and childminders.

All McQueens milk is sourced from farmer-owned co-operative, First Milk, guaranteeing that all their milk is 100% British and produced to the highest standards. The milk in McQueens bottles can be traced back to a local British farm that has been audited by the Red Tractor Farm Assurance scheme. First Milk are committed to achieving net-per carbon by 2040 and only work with businesses who take their responsibility to act sustainably seriously.

McQueens Dairies employ over 1,000 staff and have a head office at High Craighall in Glasgow with over 16 depots across the UK.

 

Calum McQueen, Commercial Director said

“As a business that is proud to serve families across the UK and to have restored the tradition of milk delivery to the doorstep, we are equally proud to be sponsors of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs at the Festival Theatre in 2022. After all, pantomime is another great British tradition and, like McQueens deliveries, is a stable in the family calendar!

We know that kids and parents across Scotland will be excited to see this year’s show just as we are thrilled to be supporting it as a local business.”
