The Singh family have been involved in the dairy industry since 1981 where we purchased our first milk run in Cairns, 5 years later we sold that business and moved to Brisbane and purchased 3 milk runs in the Logan City area.
Between 1999 and 2008 we acquired several other Parmalat (Pauls milk) territories on the southside of Brisbane and the business expanded significantly whilst maintain the Kingston depot as a distribution base.
In October 2008, we decided to venture into Foodservice & hired a sales representative to see where this would lead.
Fast forward 10 years and this is a valuable part of our growing business with over 300 Foodservice lines to add onto your milk and dairy delivery!
In January 2014, we joined Countrywide buying group to strengthen our Foodservice buying power.
Our recent acquisition
In March 2018, we purchased a large division of Quantum Milk Distribution from Parmalat, with this purchase our business effectively doubled making Southside Milk & Food Supplies the largest Milk Distributors in Queensland.
