Cash help for Welsh Two Welsh dairy companies are set for expansion with support from the Welsh Development Agency. ACC Milk is to receive support for a £836,000 project to install a third bottling facility at its existing site in Cardiff. The expansion project ­ which begins next month ­ will increase productivity at the site, securing the jobs of 140 employees and creating an extra 15 to 20 jobs. The Cardiff depot is part of the larger Associated Co-operative Creameries Group which has manufacturing sites at Llangadog in Carmarthenshire and Llandyrnog in Denbighshire. The expansion will also indirectly support the future for the 140 people employed in other ACC depots around South Wales. Some 30% of the funding will be met by a processing and marketing grant which is being delivered by the WDA. And Golden Vale of Bridgend will also receive funding to support its £357,000 programme to develop new products and introduce environmental improvements. Golden Vale Dairies, a subsidiary of the Kerry Group, supplies a diverse customer base in South Wales with milk sourced directly from local farms. The funding will be used for capital investment in plant/ machinery, as well as product development and a range of other business improvement schemes. This project, which is being 40% funded by the processing and marketing grant, will safeguard 171 jobs and create a further five. Work will begin next month. {{CANNED GOODS }}
