Dairy Crest, the UK’s largest dairy processor, could be set to create jobs at a cheese packing site in the west of England.

The company told just-food today (19 April) that it was mulling whether to add 80 jobs at its facility in Frome in Somerset.

The site is the packing facility for Dairy Crest’s Cathedral City cheese, one of the company’s five key brands, alongside Clover and Country Life butter, St Hubert Omega-3 spread and Frijj milkshake.

“We can confirm that there is a recruitment programme at Frome which may result in the creation of up to 80 new jobs,” Dairy Crest said. “Cathedral City is enjoying great success and we are devising an innovations programme to continue with that success.”
