Milkman delivery come back in Big City
The milkman might be a thing of the past for many Australians but the service has made a comeback in New York City.
According to recent US media reports, milkman services are surprisingly successfully operating in New York City today. Despite there being 7-Eleven and other similar convenience stores open around the city 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to easily deliver milk, there is three dedicated milk delivery services operating in the city says FoodDive.
Manhattan Milk, for example, has been operating in New York for ten years and offers eggs and other fresh produce along with milk.
It is also a bit more modern than your traditional milk man, allowing for orders to be made through text.
What has happened to the Australian milkman
Over the past several months, Australian Food News has written about fresh food delivery services, like the revitalised Aussie Farmers Direct that delivers fresh milk along with other fresh grocery items.
In late 2016, The Larder Door also launched in Australia with the sole purpose of bringing farmers market produce straight to consumer doors.
But as far as the traditional milkman service goes, there is a well-known service operational in Canberra, run by 74-year milkman Joe Cliff who has been in the milk delivery game for 16 years.
