Middledale Foods Dairy Suppliers
What do we do?
We describe ourselves as Suppliers of Dairy and Egg Ingredients to Food Manufacturers. Some people use the terms agents, brokers or wholesalers to describe us but we are not just a distributor of a range of products. We aim to understand our customers’ requirements and to recommend the most functional Dairy Ingredient solution at a cost-competitive price and to ensure that those ingredients are delivered as and when required by our customers and of course at a competitive price over the longer term.

Our product range is summarised as follows:
- Creams, both fresh and UHT
- Milks, both fresh and UHT
- SC Milks
- Yogurts & Cultured Products
- Soft Cheeses
- Grated Cheeses
- Organic Dairy & Egg Ingredients
- Milk Proteins & Dairy Powder
Where are your Ingredients produced?
They are either in the UK or elsewhere in the EU. Each of our Manufacturing Partners has been approved by us and almost all have third party accreditation from recognised authorities such as BRC, IFS, FSC22000, etc.
We work with a wide range of Manufacturing Partners and who are specialists in their field. For each of our Dairy and Egg Ingredients, we have trusted manufacturers producing the highest quality products for our customers.
Many of these relationships have been established for years and we have built a rapport of good honest trading and with substantial business attached. Our buying power and our financial standing means that the price we can offer to our customers is competitive in the marketplace. We actively negotiate competitive prices in the changing market place so that our customers can benefit in the longer term. In other cases we have exclusive supply arrangements so that our customers have access to a wider supply base than otherwise.
For certain products we hold stock at accredited stores for prompt delivery by approved transport contractors and in other cases we arrange fresh production and prompt delivery direct to our customers. If any issues arise we take ownership of that issue and aim to ensure a prompt solution is achieved to meet our customer’s requirements.
So why use us?
This is a good question.
We like to be more than just dairy suppliers. Every member of our team has industry experience and a vast knowledge of product development, technical expertise and application know-how. This means we are here to help when your company needs us. By understanding your requirements in strict confidence we can help you find the right ingredient for your products and processes. This could be a new concept, an addition to a current line or a direct replacement for an ingredient you use currently. Our broad portfolio of products and packs and an extensive range of Manufacturing Partners should ensure that we can recommend the most suitable product for your company.
Briefly, we aim to work in partnership with our customers to our mutual benefit.
Additional to all of this, we are constantly growing and innovating in line with consumer trends and customer demands. This is why we have recently launched our own ingredient, a dairy-free alternative to yogurt, Yo-Good. This is the first product in our dairy-free range with other products in development such as a dairy-free cheese. These products are ideal for manufacturers producing products in the rapidly growing free-from sector.
