The UK’s Crediton Dairy has announced a £12m ($15.8m) investment in 2019 in its flavored and functional milk processing facility.

The investment will see an expansion in the processing capacity and capabilities at the plant in Crediton, Devon. 

There will be a second, new production hall containing two new, high speed, fillers taking the number of filling lines at Crediton Dairy to seven. In addition to increasing processing capacity, these will provide Crediton with greater flexibility to produce a wider range of flavored and functional milks utilizing new production techniques and packaging formats. 

Having invested £14m ($18.4m) since 2013, Crediton Dairy has built its capability to produce flavored and functional milk drinks including its branded Arctic iced coffee range, Moo flavored milks and functional milks such as Flora Pro Activ, Lactose free milk and most recently a2 milk, as a result of a supply partnership with the a2 Milk Company. 

Work on building the new production hall will commence in March and it is expected the new facility will be completed by fall 2019.
