Re: Muller and Wiseman


I was taken aback to find the full share offer ( 1/4 inch thick document) in my post this morning - for my 100 shares!!.
They`ve obviously been well down the line with this for some period of time.

My take on it is the current owners see bleak times ahead for the processing industry for the foreseeable future, and have done the deal.
This is not a positive scenario then for producers.

Re: Muller and Wiseman


It is a bit worrying that more UK processing is falling into foreign hands. There is already over £200 million of profits taken out of the UK dairy industry some goes to Denmark, France and other europeans.
 I wonder if there will be a counter bid from some of the big players ? :UK: :UK: :UK: :UK:

Re: Muller and Wiseman


Neither of the two big liquid companies would be allowed - so that leaves who precisely?
Another foreign co-op?
What other major milk products company wants into UK liquid market?

Arla have just followed suit and cut their price 2p. Was expecting it after hearing Wisemans cut. It does seem a big drop all at once.

Re: Muller and Wiseman


Its not right the way that the milk companies can do this. They would never in their wildest nightmares put the price up by 2p/litre. Time for the farmers groups and NFU to start actually fighting for Britains farmers?

Re: Muller and Wiseman


Is it not strange that they all seem to have dropped by the same ammount !!!! I think I smell a CARTELL emoticon emoticon
 Wisemans are loosing money lots of money and the talk was they needed 5ppl to get back to profit, they got 3-4p from middle ground retailers and took 2p form producers.
 They call it the Wiseman [sign in to see URL] my ARSE. emoticon emoticonOH:

Re: Muller and Wiseman


I was told a good story about a Wiseman producer who had just signed a contract with First Milk and Wiseman/Muller were trying to get him to recind, and he said to them at a meeting " The last 5 months have been like Battered Wife syndrum" you have just kicked ten bells out of us over the last few months and you turn up with roses and chocolates and expect everything to be ok.
And he told them where they could stick their increase.
