Arla Foods to Expand in Scotland

Arla Foods is expanding its business in Scotland, and plans to create a new depot in Bellshill, Glasgow, to handle additional milk and product volumes. Arla is aiming to increase production capacity by almost 40% at its Lockerbie dairy in Scotland, which will enable the company to meet growing demand from customers. The new depot will have the capacity to deliver both fresh milk products direct to store, and also other products for own and third party customers through Arla’s pallet network.

Paul Lloyd, vice president for operations at Arla Foods UK, comments: “The proposal is in line with Arla’s growth strategy, and we have identified Scotland as an opportunity for further growth. The new Central Belt depot will establish a strong platform for future fresh milk deliveries in Scotland.”

He adds: “The move will also support our sustainability agenda, as our product will be closer to the customer, reducing the number of road miles.” It is expected that the proposals will be implemented in March 2012. Once up and running, Arla plans to work with a third party to manage the Central Belt depot.
