M*lkman was founded way back in 2017 when the man in the photo above was running a plant based smoothie stall on Brick Lane and decided enough was enough, plastic is fucking up the world and we want no part of it!
the stuff that came in tetra packs was not only full of unpronounceable ingredients and was weak as water, it was also using unnecessary plastic and causing way too much waste
The idea to stick M*lk in glass bottles wasn't exactly new, but for alt-milks it was, and from day dot we were never going to contribute to the plastic problem.
furthermore, if we were going to make a positive impact on the planet, we only ever saw a 'return and reuse policy' as the only viable option
and, people seemed more than keen to hop onboard and give us a go.
we built a community, attended yoga mornings, went door to door, turned up at shows and even did some flyposting campaigns to raise awareness of what we're doing
After 2 years of literally zero sleep, an insanely ambitious list of 12 nut milk products and endless trips across london by bike, train, foot and eventually M*lkfloat, we have now narrowed things down to our best sellers, Oat & Coconut
Our community and our drive to create a better, more sustainable, environmentally conscious future is still, and will forever be at the heart of what we do!
We're now nationwide and have even wider dreams in mind
Thank you to anyone that's supported us a long the way!
We don't want to be known as a business that produces M*lks.
We want to be known as an organisation that uses the money it makes from selling M*lks to do good, give back, support environmentalists, challenge damaging practices and changes the world
We're incredibly proud to be part of 1% for the planet and donate to non-profits that are doing such amazing work
