Scottish business Graham’s the Family Dairy has submitted a planning application to build a £20m dairy and R&D facility in Stirling.

The project is part of a partnership between Graham’s and housing developer Mactaggart & Mickel Homes, and also includes plans to construct up to 600 new houses, local infrastructure and a school in the Airthrey Green district.

Graham’s MD Robert Graham said the project would help create up to 450 new jobs and would allow the business to grow its turnover from the current level of £82m to £120m by 2020. “The ability to build a new, bespoke dairy with an NPD facility will allow us to respond to market opportunities,” he added.
