Who we are
Ongar Dairy now deliver to over 4,000 customers, including over 1,200 offices in London and Essex. We cater for all breakfast needs and are proud to be viewed as trusted business partners, rather than suppliers. We access many of London’s most prestigious offices in the early hours, rather than simply leaving products outside, and have robust internal procedures designed to assure our customers that we can be trusted.
Ongar Dairy was formed with the coming together of two families. Gary and Kevin have over 50 years of industry experience between them. They were colleagues at both Arla Foods and Express Dairies in Loughton and Romford and identified a gap in the market for high-quality, professional service. Chris studied to be an accountant and spent his early career in audit but after 10 years of relentless travel in the Corporate world decided he wanted a more hands home-based operational role.
The Ongar Dairy family quickly grew, firstly with Gary and Kevin’s wives and then other members of their families and friends. Ongar Dairy is built on a foundation of a passion to succeed, hard work and a drive to be recognised for providing top quality products and service.
