UK dairy business Milk Link announced the acquisition of the Cornish Country Larder cheese business today (25 January).

Milk Link said that the move will enable it to offer its major retail and food service customers a selection of soft cheeses and said it is the “natural evolution of the successful strategic partnership established between Milk Link and Cornish Country Larder over the last 18 months”.

It added that the deal will provide the basis for the next stage in the growth and development for the Cornish Country Larder’s Trevarrian Creamery, which will “benefit from new investment to further enhance its processing capacity, product quality and service levels”.

Commenting on the deal, Milk Link CEO Neil Kennedy said: “The acquisition is a further positive development for Milk Link whose dairy farmer membership heartland is in the South West and is in-line with our strategy of building Milk Link into the leading British value-added dairy processing business. The deal provides an opportunity for us to grow and develop an already successful business by leveraging our wider, national customer base and proven know how in sales and marketing; operations and logistics; and new product and packaging development.”

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
