Dairy Crest Liquids Division sold to Muller Wiseman


This news came completely out of the blue today! I am not yet certain where we stand as DC suppliers, but the press reports suggest that it is only the 350 Davidstow suppliers that will remain with DC.

After 13 years with DC within a few months we have personally gone from signing u with a Danish co-op, to rescinding and staying with DC as a British company, to finding our supply has almost certainly been sold to a German owned company!

The liquids division of DC has been struggling for some time, but I am not certain any farmers saw this coming.

Some time ago Dairy Crest were rumoured to want out of liquid, but were " awarded" a supermarket contract, to make sure that three main players , continued to tear at each other`s throats, to the benefit of the supermarkets.

My milk continues to go to Mueller, ( we are only 35 miles from Bellshill), but I will soon be getting 21 ppl for it.

I've been hearing DC looking to sell for some time now.

Source has also been predicting one other milk buyer likely to disappear.

Hopefully by the time the regulatory authorities approve the deal the dairy market will have improved. We are on a DC formula contract which is paying 30.8 ppl at present. If a 10 ppl differential existed I am sure that it would not be long before the formula was altered!

DC will only retain its Davidstow suppliers, 400 or so in the South West.
