At Lewis Road, we’ve got long memories. Long enough to recall a time when the milk was delivered to your doorstep. When you woke up to the clinking of glass bottles...
At Lewis Road, one of our longtime goals has been to make our milk available to New Zealanders in glass bottles. We are glad to say that our journey towards glass has begun! Having teamed up the The Glass Bottle Milk Co., we've been able to install three Milk Refillery stations in a handful of Farro Fresh stores across Auckland (Grey Lynn, Epsom & Constellation Drive). Here, you'll be able to pick up a 1L glass bottle (for a one-time price of $4) that is yours to keep and refill with our organic whole milk (for $4 a litre). Simply pick one up next time you are in store, fill, use, rinse, repeat!
All the new glass bottles ready for purchase at the refill stations are sanitised before becoming ready for sale and use, so you can use them straight away. The refill machines are sanitised daily, and the milk nozzle in the machines is cleaned throughout the day. When you are at home and have finished your milk, all you need to do is pop your bottle in the dishwasher or wash in hot soapy water, then you are ready to roll when you come back to Farros to refill again!
This is just the beginning of our plan to make our Milk Refilleries available nationwide, so watch this space, Roadies, as we hope to roll this initiative out across the country. For now, here's a little more info about how it works:
