Dairy company Müller has announced a proposal to invest £60m into upgrading capabilities and operational efficiencies at its Bridgwater, Droitwich, Foston, Manchester and Severnside sites, according to UK levy board AHDB Dairy.
This is part of a £100m plus investment plan covering all of its business in the coming 18 months.
As part of these development plans, the processor plans to commence a phased wind down of the Chadwell Heath dairy in North East London, also over an 18 month period. A decision will be made on this following a 45 day consultation starting on 10 November.
Müller has previously announced a £15m investment in Bellshill, Scotland as well as reversing the decision to close the Hanworth Dairy in South West London, which services its ‘milk&more’ business.
