Müller Wiseman Dairies has confirmed plans to close two UK depots, in Keith and Whitburn.

The sites are expected to be shuttered by the end of the year, the company said. A total of 139 jobs will be lost as a result.

Müller Wiseman said that the decision follows a strategic review and formal consultation process. The closures are the result of “significant reductions” in the number of deliveries run from each site, the company added.

“Employees, management and unions worked extremely hard to find ways of addressing the challenges facing these depots, but we have been unable to establish an economic basis for continuing to distribute milk from Keith or Whitburn,” Carl Ravenhall, MD at Müller Wiseman Dairies, said.

Distribution will be transferred to depots in Aberdeen and Cambuslang, where at least 81 new posts will be created.
