Crediton Dairy Over the Years

Our dairy, located in the heart of the Devon market town of Crediton, was established on its present location in 1947. Originally processing fresh milk from local farms it began producing long life milk twenty-one years later.

Now, after significant development and investments, Crediton Dairy has earned its position as a highly efficient speciality milk drinks producer within the dairy industry.
