Delamere Dairy is a family farming business based in UK which started its activity more than 35 years ago. From the very beginning, they still have very strong family values today, embodying household values as a trusted and family friendly brand.
In November 2020 Delamere contacted the European Food Banks Federation to donate a stock of milk - long life cow’s milk, skimmed and semi skimmed close to expiring - stored in a warehouse in Zeebrugge.
The milk – 2.808 litres – was successfully picked up by the Voedselbank West-Vlaanderen and was redistributed to charities helping the most needed in that area of Belgium.
“Delamere Dairy is pleased to be able to donate our milk at a time when life is difficult for everyone and so many families are facing real hardship. We hope that our donation will go some way to making life easier for those who are finding things particularly tough at this time” stated Emma Davies, Head of Ambient at Delamere.
“The milk offer was particularly appreciated by the 82 charitable organisations that redistribute food in West Flanders. We are helping more than 15.000 people in need. The geographical location of our Food Bank allows us to forge regular relations with France and England through the support of exporting and importing companies located in Zeebrugge. A big thank you also to FEBA for its intermediation” declared Ignace Bosteels, CEO of the Voedselbank West-Vlaanderen.
