In top gear

FAST-growing Scottish dairy company Graham’s reckons  there’s increasing demand for whole milk and organic milk.

And the firm, which says its products are now bought by over half the Scottish market, plans to serve that demand and go back to the future with organic whole milk, complete with the cream on top.

Graham’s new Organic Whole Milk is non-homogenised so it’s cream rises to the top in a way that’s likely to trigger memories of the way milk used to be for consumers of a certain age.

A company spokesperson said: “Health conscious customers have been telling us that they’re looking for more organic options, to maximise on all the added goodness that organic dairy brings, naturally providing more essential fatty acid Omega 3. There is also increasing demand amongst foodies for more indulgent, whole milk.”

So it has launched its  new non-homogenised organic whole milk. “The milk’s creamy top means it is unlike any other organic whole milk currently on the market,” the firm said. 

“To ensure the cream rises to the top, the milk is non-homogenised, meaning that it does not go through the process which gives other milk products a more consistent texture.”

The organic milk is packaged in clear plastic bottles, similar to Graham’s Gold range.

The Gold range milk is available in two varieties: Gold Top, with the cream on top and Gold Smooth, with the cream mixed throughout. The Gold range also includes butter and double cream.

The spokesperson said: “Due to the success of our Gold milk range, which accounts for 7.5% of all our milk sales, we are now developing Graham’s Gold Top Spreadable Butter which is performing well in preliminary taste trials. 

“Our existing spreadable butter range is only available in Scotland but we firmly believe our Gold Top spreadable butter will have national appeal, given the success of our other Gold Top products that are widely available across the UK.”

The firm says more than 6,000 outlets now stock Graham’s branded milk products.

And the firm’s spokesperson said: “We are dedicated to the highest quality and are incredibly proud to have industry recognition.

“However, we are even more proud that over half the Scottish population now buy Graham’s products.”
