Dairygold Food Ingredients announces biggest ever UK investment for its Leeds site
Leading cheese supplier Dairygold Food Ingredients UK (DFI UK) is preparing to invest £4.5m in a significant enhancement of its Leeds facility in Swillington.
In the biggest single UK investment to date, Dairygold Food Ingredients will begin a four-phase build in February 2020 to boost productivity, increase capacity and improve office workspace, along with implementing a progressive NPD agenda, coinciding with the commissioning of new, state of the art, production equipment.
Commenting on the investment, general manager of DFI Leeds Matt Lawton said: “This is a huge step forward for our Leeds site and our UK business in general, and clearly demonstrates the confidence that our parent company Dairygold Co-Operative Society has in our future. This investment will increase output, improve efficiency for our existing customers, and generate significant new opportunities.
“We are confident that the scale and scope of this investment will be recognised by our customers, suppliers and colleagues. DFI UK is determined to reinforce our leading market position and continue building on our success as a leading British manufacturer and supplier of cultured dairy products.”
