Growth in Private Label Yogurt and Desserts at Müller Dairy

Having recently announced the potential loss of 43 posts at its Market Drayton site as part of a review of operational efficiencies, Müller Dairy is to create up to 50 new jobs at its yogurt and chilled desserts production centres at Telford and Minsterley in Shropshire, following strong growth in demand for the private label yogurt and desserts produced at these facilities.

Müller Dairy is ensuring that those who may be affected by the job losses at Market Drayton are offered the opportunity to transfer.

Roger Emery, Müller Dairy’s Operations Director says: “We are excited by the growth in private label yogurts and desserts and delighted to be able to create these new posts at Telford and Minsterley. We are offering careers in a business which continues to develop and aims to be the best dairy company in the UK. We currently employ almost 1,000 people in Shropshire and we intend to continue to build our business in the area.”

Müller Dairy is the UK’s leading branded yogurt manufacturer, with major brands such as Müller Corner, Müllerlight and Müller Rice. The business makes chilled desserts including Cadbury Bubbles of Joy, Pots of Joy, Layers of Joy and Twin-pot products, produced under license from Mondelez. Müller Dairy also supplies the UK private label yogurt market from its state-of-the-art yogurt facility in Telford.

Müller Dairy is part of Müller UK & Ireland, which operates 19 sites nationwide and employs almost 6,000 people across two business units – Müller Dairy and Müller Wiseman Dairies.

Müller Wiseman Dairies is a leading fresh milk, cream and butter business with a network of dairies and depots servicing customers throughout the country. The business recently commenced butter-making, opening a major facility in Shropshire with the capacity to produce up to 45,000 tonnes of salted, unsalted and lactic butter each year for the manufacturing, food service and retail sectors.

To make its range of dairy products, the Müller UK & Ireland buys milk from more than 1,200 British dairy farmers, all of whom are Red Tractor Farm Assured. Müller UK & Ireland is wholly owned by the Müller Group of Germany.
