The company’s investment has increased capacity and capability of milk intake, processing, filling and storage. The 6,500m2 plant will increase the amount of milk Lancashire Farm Dairies can process by 100%.
Jack Morrison, brand manager at Lancashire Farm Dairies, said: “As a brand we’re always looking to evolve. During a time of growth that has seen the company boost sales, with initial figures showing a rise of 20% since the free-range products hit shelves at the start of 2018, this investment is the latest sign that Lancashire Farm Dairies is going from strength to strength and is continuing to move forward as a key market player.
‘We needed to invest’
“As we’ve continued to see increased demand of our products, we needed to invest in the infrastructure that will continue to deliver that volume and ensure positive growth, and this new plant will do exactly that.”
The investment follows a successful 2018, which saw the brand become the first UK yogurt producer to use free-range milk in all of its yogurt products.
In line with its Grazing Guarantee, Lancashire Farm’s network of local farms will continue supplying the free-range milk required by the plant, as its innovators continue striving to provide the best products for their customers.
