Alan Wiseman retires from his position as chairman of Robert Wiseman Dairies, the UK liquid milk processor, at the group’s annual general meeting today, having spent his entire working life at the company. Andrew Dare is also retiring from the board.

To achieve a seamless transition, the group announced in May that chief executive Robert Wiseman had become full time executive chairman and group finance director Billy Keane had been promoted to take up the role of managing director. Gerry Sweeney also became group finance director.

Robert Wiseman Dairies is on track with its plans to increase capacity to 500m litres per annum at its Bridgwater dairy in England from November 2010 at an anticipated cost of £10m. In addition, the group is progressing the £8m investment to double its fresh filtered milk capacity and expects this project to be completed by the Summer of 2011.

“As I step down as chairman, I am pleased to report that the group has started the year positively and is well placed in terms of its facilities and customer base to develop further. We look forward to completion of the new capacity at Bridgwater and the opportunities this will provide,” says Alan Wiseman. “It has been a privilege to serve as chairman of Robert Wiseman Dairies PLC and to oversee the progress that has been made, particularly since our listing on the London Stock Exchange in 1994. The Group is well placed and in good hands for the future.”
