What makes us different?

The Mortons & Harrisons story

Mortons Dairies is based in Maghull, Merseyside and has been a proud family run local business for nearly nine decades. Over the years, we have developed form a simple milk processor to a fully fledged dairy wholesaler and supplier, with a product range that includes fresh fruit juices, bread and cheese along with a wide variety of other everyday staples.

Despite our growth, we are enthusiastically local in the way we source our products, all of our suppliers of bread, eggs and potatoes are located in the North West. We also collect all of our milk from 25 Red Tractor accredited farms situated with 20 miles of our head office in Maghull.

We’ve come a long way since we opened our doors in the 1920’s. Back then, milk was collected in huge churns from Liverpool Railway Station, transported to Bootle to be pasteurised and bottled,and was then delivered by horse and cart to local homes and businesses.

From humble beginnings, we have grown to become one of the largest dairies in the North West, with more than 55,000 customers. Our mort recent developments include modernising our milk processing plant and aquiring three sites from Dairy Crest to cement our place in the region.
