High levels of processing efficiency, product quality and customer service
Leading processing efficiency & product quality
Since acquiring Crediton Dairy in 2013 we have invested over £34 million in upgrading our production facilities. As a result our modern, self-contained and well-invested dairy is amongst the very best processing facilities in the industry ensuring that we can deliver high levels of processing efficiency, product quality and customer service.
Investments made over the years include the installation of state-of-the-art high speed filling lines dedicated to the production of fresh flavoured and functional milk drinks in a range of new pack sizes and formats. These have been complemented by major upgrades to the dairy’s milk handling, product mixing and production control capabilities.
2019 saw Crediton Dairy embark in its most ambitious plan to date: a £12M investment to build a second packing hall on the existing Crediton site. The additional hall houses new state of the art packing lines which extend Crediton Dairy’s capacity and capabilities across a variety of additional new packaging formats and sizes. The first of the new packaging formats became available in May 2020 with the second becoming fully operational March 2021. Further investments were made in 2021 to extend Crediton Dairy’s mixing capabilities, and we plan to continue investing in the site over the years ahead to improve energy efficiency. The aim is to reduce the impact on the environment in line with our Environmental Sustainability Plan.
