    Behind the Scenes with Daltons Dairy

    We thoroughly enjoyed reflecting on and celebrating the incredible journey of Daltons Dairy. Tracing back to 2016 when they were just an idea to today where they are now a well-known local name. 
    We’re looking back, starting from the very beginning – a time of yoghurt pot mood boards, vetoing the cartoon cow, and their eviction from outside Waitrose. We follow the evolution of the business that transformed it into a community sanctuary during the COVID-19 lockdown in 2020. 
    Don't forget to catch Rosie's invaluable insights on the dos and don'ts of bootstrapping a business during its early days.
