Creamline so Special?
The Creamline Story
A family business passionate about supporting local, at Creamline we’ve been delivering milk from Cheshire farmers for over 70 years.
Creamline remains very much a family company to this day. Founded in 1945 by Peter Roe, Creamline initially supplied businesses in Trafford Park and Worsley. Recognising the potential in the growing doorstep delivery market, Peter began canvassing furiously and for many years Creamline was a successful doorstep delivery company.
The business was acquired from the Roe family in 1994 by Tony Swallow, the former Managing Director of Heald's Dairies in Didsbury and since then, with Tony at the helm as Executive Chairman, Creamline has been run by his son, Chris and son-in-law Rob Purvis, who are joint managing directors.
Creamline has grown to be one of the leading independent dairy companies in the UK, acquiring the North West local delivery business of Dairy Crest.
Combining the best of traditional values with innovative methods - to ensure its service is as fresh as its product – Creamline combines all that’s great about the traditional milk round, with free delivery to your door.
Modernising the image of the milk round, it’s not just milk that we deliver. Nowadays the Creamline family is even bigger, working with independent shops across the county to help deliver the best of local, to homes across Greater Manchester and Cheshire - handpicking a selection of Manchester and Cheshire’s very finest butchers, bakers, cheese specialists, grocery and fruit & veg suppliers.
Creamline is dedicated to reducing food miles and working with local farms and suppliers: all milk is sourced from within a 30 mile radius of the dairy.
As well as doorstep deliveries, from its purpose built processing and bottling plant in Eccles and headquarters in Trafford Park, Creamline caters for the wholesale, catering and shop markets in Greater Manchester.
Thanks to Creamline, in the time it takes to boil the kettle, you could order your daily essentials online, as well as your choice of little luxuries from Creamline’s Best of Local range, for next day delivery - in time for breakfast.
