Arla Foods UK, the British arm of Scandinavian dairy co-operative Arla Foods, is investing £6.7m in a new bottle blowmoulding machine to increase production of its Cravendale milk brand at its production facility at Stourton in Leeds. When operational in March 2011, the new blowmoulder, which will supplement two existing machines, will expand milk production capacity by about 50m litres.

“Cravendale has doubled in value in the last four years. Since its launch 12 years ago we have recently topped the 200 million litre milestone and expect value sales to exceed £166 m by the end of the year,” says Sam Dolan, Cravendale brand manager. “The expansion of the blowmoulding facility at Stourton and subsequent increase in production capacity supports our ambitious growth targets for Cravendale, where we plan to be a top 10 grocery brand by 2020.”
