Arla dairy Aylesbury

Arla has opened a £150m fresh milke dairy in Aylesbury

The world’s biggest fresh milk dairy, built by Arla Foods on the outskirts of Aylesbury, has commenced production.

Following several weeks of trials, milk has started flowing out of the £150m facility and into Arla’s retail customers’ stores.

The dairy has the capacity to process up to one billion litres of fresh milk, sourced from the co-operative’s dairy farmers, and will be zero carbon.

“Our Aylesbury dairy is the largest single investment for the co-operative and, as market leader, Arla is setting the future standard for the dairy industry. We are now beginning to ramp up our operations,” said Arla Foods CEO Peter Lauritzen.

Arla announced its intention to build the 70-acre dairy in November 2009, to give it a strategic base from which to transport milk to its customers in and around the London area.
