British yoghurt produced NOM UK plans to invest up to £110 million over the coming years to expand its production plant inShropshire, with the creation of 350 jobs. Based at Telford, the dairy only commenced production in December 2008 following investment of £60 million. The new investment will double the size of the dairy, which currently employs 160 people.

 

The planned expansion will be in two stages. The first phase will entail investment of £65 million and create up to 200 jobs. The second phase will add a further 150 jobs, extend output from the present level of 350 million pots a year to around one billion pots, and take investment to between £100 million and £110 million. NOM UK produces branded and own label yoghurt for the major British and Irish multiple retailers.

 

“NOM UK is uniquely placed to build its market share substantially through the opportunities presented by developing our UK manufacturing centre which uses British milk and local labour as well as sustainable production methods and offers significant carbon footprint reduction,” says Christoph Wenisch, chief executive of NOM International, who is taking over responsibility for the UK business following the decision by current chief executive David Potts to leave at the end of the year.

.

Christoph Wenisch adds: “There is extensive land on our 24-acre site available for the expansion and most of the base infrastructure is already in place to process the large additional volumes of British milk that will be required.”
