Milk Link Recruits For Expanded Lockerbie Creamery

British dairy co-operative Milk Link has now recruited over 40% of the milk it requires for the expansion of its Lockerbie Creamery in Scotland. This securing of about 50 million litres of additional milk on a long term basis means that the business is ahead of its recruitment targets, both in volume and timing, as it builds up increased milk supplies in advance of the new cheese facility going operational at the end of 2012.

 

In addition, Milk Link is currently following up over 255 enquiries from farmers based across the UK seeking further information on the benefits of supplying it. The recruitment campaign relates to Milk Link’s major £20 million investment to transform its Lockerbie Creamery which, when complete, will enhance both its capacity and capabilities and make it the largest dairy processing facility in Scotland. The site will benefit from a major redevelopment with the installation of the latest processing technology increasing annualised production by 12,000 tonnes to over 37,000 tonnes of cheese per annum.
