The first milk for its retail customers is now rolling off the filling lines at Arla Foods UK’s new Aylesbury dairy in Buckinghamshire. Arla has invested over £500 million in the UK since 2007 and commenced building the Aylesbury site in February 2012.

The £150 million state-of-the-art dairy is set to be the world’s largest fresh milk facility with the most technologically advanced and efficient processing, and an ambition to be zero carbon when it reaches full capacity.

The new dairy will have a capacity to process one billion litres of fresh milk, sourced from the co-operative’s British dairy farmers.

Peter Lauritzen, chief executive of Arla Foods UK, says: “Our Aylesbury dairy is the largest single investment for the co-operative and, as market leader, Arla is setting the future standard for the dairy industry. We are now beginning to ramp-up our operations.”

Processing approximately 3.2 billion litres of milk a year and with a turnover of approximatey £2 billion Arla is the UK’s largest dairy company.
