Following a thorough review of its manufacturing operations, First Milk, the UK dairy farmers co-operative, is to planning to make changes to its Lake District and Haverfordwest creameries to improve the productivity and efficiency of these sites.

Shelagh Hancock, chief executive of First Milk.

Shelagh Hancock, chief executive of First Milk, comments: “We have made significant capital investments at our manufacturing sites over the last few years. These investments will continue, as the amount of cheese that we are manufacturing will increase next year and is forecast to grow further in the future in line with demand from our customer base.”

She continues: “However, in light of this we recognise that we need to improve the strength, efficiency and flexibility of our main manufacturing sites and make the assets work harder. This will allow us to utilise both sites better and deliver improved returns to our farmer members.”

The proposed changes would result in a reduction in headcount numbers, that around 20 roles removed from the site structure at the Lake District Creamery, and around 10 roles removed from Haverfordwest Creamery.
