About Us

Our Principles and Processes

Milky Way sources the best available products from leading dairy and other manufacturers and delivers to your door as cost-effectively as possible. Only products from well-established, leading manufacturers are researched and sourced, ensuring quality and health standards are met and sustained.

The Latest in Cold Storage Facilities and Equipment

Using state-of-the-art cold rooms and warehouse facilities, products are delivered directly to customers in Department of Health compliant refrigerated vehicles.  This ensures the quality and freshness of products throughout the delivery process and after.

How it All Started

Milky Way was formed by Deon Hendricks in 2005. Employed as a retail banker after leaving college, Deon dreamed of opening his own business. In the early 2000s, he resigned from his cosy corporate environment and took the plunge. After initially trying his hand at the catering and retail markets, he noticed the need for an independent distribution company that could deliver dairy products to the trade efficiently and cost-effectively. The idea for the establishment of Milky Way had been born, and the rest, as they say, is history!


Milky Way has grown it’s capacity over the years to be able to deliver to a wide customer base, including corporate customers, the catering industry, the food service industry and the retail sector. We take great pride in the fact that we are able to serve international corporates to your local pizzeria!
