Wyke Farms and OMSCo launch The British Organic Dairy Company
Wyke Farms and The Organic Milk Suppliers Cooperative (OMSCo) have revealed their new joint business identity as The British Organic Dairy Company.
It is hoped that the collaboration between the two companies will provide a more streamlined operation for the production of key organic dairy products.
The development comes after the pair announced their business partnership in July and publically set out their intention to globally supply organic cheese, and premium cheese by-products by expanding organic cheese production, distribution and sales.
“This collaboration will create a solid platform to grow sales of organic dairy products and allow it to reach its potential in a growing world market, now and post-Brexit,” says Rich Clothier, managing director and family member at Wyke Farms.
He continues, “This alliance brings together quality and excellence in organic dairy production, from the world’s second largest 100% organic milk producer combined with award winning cheddar quality from Wyke Farms; the most sustainable cheese maker in the world – it really is a world beating collaboration!”
OMSCo’s managing director Richard Hampton, comments, “The launch of our business-to-business brand, The British Organic Dairy Company, is an exciting development and will enable us to facilitate the sales and marketing of our products under a joint brand identity.”
The creation of The British Organic Dairy Company means that Wyke Farms will be sourcing all of the milk requirements for organic cheese production from OMSCo, whilst OMSCo will increase its range of specialist organic cheese made by Wyke Farms for export markets, and also take a share in the ownership of bulk cheddar stocks for a proportion of domestic and export sales.
