Direct Milk Supplies has been a family run dairy supplier since it was established in 1966.

The company is still based at its original site in Elstree, Hertforshire. DMS, better know as Direct Milk Supplies, was established in 1966 by Ernie Jenkins. Though not based in the West it would be fair to say he was the fastest milkman in the South. Now DMS is run by Ernie’s son, Doug and daughter Glynis with Doug’s son Alex also a member of the team.

DMS are specialists and suppliers of dairy products to hotels, restaurants, manufacturers, caterers and many other company types in and around London and Hertfordshire.

Being an independent dairy supplier we know the importance of service, consistency and quality and though much has changed in the 50 years we have been around, our core values and commitment to exceptional customer service remain the same. In fact over 90% of our customers have been with us over 10 years, something we are very proud of. Many have been with us over 20 years.


In 1966, as our name suggestions our sole product was milk but over the years our product range has grown and grown, initially through the addition of cream, yogurts, butters, cheeses & eggs and now includes, juices, purees, antipasti, bread and much more.

One foot in the past one in the future

Though we are very proud of our past and believe it has given us vast knowledge of dairy produce we are also planning for the future. With continual growth in product range, updates in technology and a commitment to a greener future.
