Bill Mustoe (pictured) will step down as chairman of UK dairy co-operative First Milk at the company’s AGM this October after four years at the helm.

Bill Mustoe comments: “I knew very little about the dairy industry when I came to First Milk four years ago. I just knew how a business should be run. There have been plenty of challenges along the way, especially over the first year, but once we made the big changes that were necessary we were off and running. When I look at First Milk now, I see a business with strong foundations that has made a huge amount of progress.”

“We’ve come a long way over the last few years and we’ve now plotted a clear path to reshape First Milk into an added value food business. I am convinced that this is the right route for us,” he continues.” I am convinced that the recent investments we have made and the clear added value strategy that we have set, will position us well for the future.”

First Milk is an integrated dairy business and Britain’s biggest Cheddar cheese specialist. Indeed, one in four packs of Cheddar sold in the Britain is made by First Milk. The co-op is also a major producer of a variety of dairy ingredients including skimmed milk powder and high value whey protein concentrate, which are used in a whole range of premium food and drink products around the globe.

First Milk has also announced Pembrokeshire farmer Nigel Evans as vice chairman designate.
