Arla Foods’ investment in the development of its bespoke butter facility at Westbury, is allowing the company to extend its UK manufactured butter offering with production of Anchor block butter beginning at the site. This will be available from September. Arla entered into a joint venture with Milk Link and First Milk in September 2010 and took responsibility for the butter operation at Westbury.

Following production of retail block butter beginning at the site in August 2011, production of Anchor block butter will further increase the supply of UK produced butter for Arla, while at the same time significantly reducing food miles and in turn its carbon footprint.

“Bringing production of Anchor to the UK is part of our long-term growth strategy and the investment at Westbury has facilitated this. As well as being directly in line with our Closer to Nature ambition, it is a further example of Arla’s commitment to the UK as we have created a home for more British cream and are adding value to it,” says Arla’s supply chain director, Lars Dalsgaard.

Arla’s investment at Westbury makes it the most modern and technologically advanced butter production facility in theUKand it is churning out award winning product. Its retail salted block butter won several prestigious accolades at this summer’s Great Yorkshire Show. As well as the Prince of Wales Award for Outstanding Quality, it picked up a gold award and best butter award.
