Graham’s plans GBP20m dairy factory in Stirling

UK dairy firm Graham's The Family Dairy has announced a GBP20m (US$30m) investment into a new dairy processing, research and training facility in Scotland.

UK dairy firm Graham's The Family Dairy has announced a GBP20m (US$30m) investment into a new dairy processing, research and training facility in Scotland.

The new site, located in Stirling, will be 150,000 square feet and will feature production lines for milk, cream, cheese and spreadable butter, as well as a research and training centre to allow for new product development.

Graham's said it will be lodging a full planning application to Stirling Council in June. The new site is expected to create 400 jobs.

Once built, the existing dairy at Airthrey Kerse in Bridge of Allan will concentrate on butter and ice cream.

Robert Graham, managing director of Graham’s The Family Dairy, said: "It will enable us to accelerate research and production of added-value dairy products across areas, which could include spreadables, organics, gluten free and nutritional "grab and go" children products.

"The time for this investment is now, to protect the industry against market volatility. Developing the right processing capacity to design, manufacture and market new dairy brands is central to achieving this national aim."
