History

Milky's UK was started in 2003 by Nabil Assi having worked for the family business in Lebanon for over 5 years.
Nabil studied in the USA and obtained a BS in electrical engineering.

The factory in Lebanon was started by Nabil's father who was an agricultural engineer and was granted a UNIDO recognition (certificate) for its cleanliness and good quality products.

Due to the bad and unstable situation in Lebanon, Nabil decided to come to the UK to test the waters using a small experimental unit which was producing cheese using 700 litres every other day.

In 2005 Milky's moved to bigger premises in Gorst Road in Park Royal on a 5 year lease and invested in equipment that was capable of producing 5000 litres per day. By the end of 2005 Milky's was utilising 1500 - 2000 litres of milk every day.

In December 2005 Nabil's brother Yousef, joined the company. Yousef who studied business admin in Turkey also worked in the family business in 1997 and in 2001. The factory in Lebanon was expanded to a very high standard.

In 2005 Nabil started working with an independant consultant and aquired Salsa status (Safe And Local Supplier Approval). He then started preparing for HACCP Certification and embarked on a traceability program of keeping records in order to obtain BRC acredititaion.

In May 2010 when the lease expired at Gorst Road, Nabil and Yousef went that extra mile and moved to new premises in Wembley to setup an especially high standard production facility with complete automated machinery using extremely high standard manufacturing equipment from Cyprus, Italy, Switzerland and the UK.

Today, Milky's is the only company in the UK that produces Lebanese and Mediteranian cheese. It now has ultra modern facilities with potential capacity for utilising 18000 litres of milk a day. Milky's currently cater for the ethnic and five star Lebanese, Greek and Italian restraurants in the UK, some in Brussels and Germany and Danube supermarkets in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

On the 17th August 2010 Milky's obtained BRC status and are now looking to penetrate the multiples market.

Fresh milk, a touch of fine sea salt, citric acid make its Great Taste Award winning white soft cheese. Milky's only use non-animal Renet in their cheeses which makes them ideal for vegetarians.
