The company said its new depot would have the capacity to deliver both fresh milk products directly to retailers, and also other products for own and third-party customers through Arla’s pallet network.
Paul Lloyd, vice president for operations at Arla, said: “The proposal is in line with Arla’s growth strategy, and we have identified Scotland as an opportunity for further growth. The new Central Belt depot will establish a strong platform for future fresh milk deliveries in Scotland.
“The move will also support our sustainability agenda, as our product will be closer to the customer, reducing the number of road miles."
Aral said it expects to implement the plans in March.
