The London-based company “Mylkman” combines a classic milk delivery service with the vegan trend. The company delivers fresh, plant-based milk drinks to its customers every morning. After use, the empty glass bottles can simply be left outside for collection. They are then sterilized and washed by Jamie Chapman, the founder of Mylkman, making them easily reusable.
“Sustainability is the foundation of our actions,” Jamie Chapman told the Huffington Post. This corporate philosophy is also reflected in the company’s activities. Mylkman always attaches great importance to protecting the environment and avoiding the exploitation of animals with plant-based products. As a result, Jamie Chapman donates 10% of Mylkman’s profits to the environmental organization Greenpeace, and the entire company is plastic-free.
The growing number of vegans is enabling the new company to gain a foothold in the economy. Mylkman recently received financial support from former model and vegan Heather Mills. Investments like these enable Mylkman to think about possible expansions and to expand its customer base beyond London.
Founded in 2017, the company produces its milk from almonds, cashews, pistachio, coconut and oats. Each bottle contains at least 12% nuts. The price for half a litre of oat milk is £1.80 (the equivalent of around €2). The current product range is limited to milk, but Jamie Chapman plans to launch coffee drinks and other waste-free products such as nut butter.
