Lancashire Farm, a UK dairy firm, has invested £3.5 million ($4.6 million) in a new production plant at its site in Rochdale, UK to increase capacity for yoghurt products, according to a report in Rochdale Online.
The investment has led to the creation of a 70,000 sq ft plant with increased capacity and capability in terms of milk intake, processing, filling and storage, and will reportedly increase the amount of milk Lancashire Farm can process by 100%.
The move to increase capacity is said to have come on the back of a “successful” 2018 and growing demand for Lancashire Farm yoghurts.
Commenting on the investment, Lancashire Farm brand manager Jack Morrison said: “As a brand we’re always looking to evolve. During a time of growth which has seen the company boost in 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”.
