Milk Link has completed the sale of its Staplemead Creamery to French food and dairy specialist Andros. The sale, which confirms Milk Link’s exit from fresh dairy ingredients, sees 213 of the company’s staff transferring to Andros. Staplemead is Andros’ first UK production facility.

“The sale of Staplemead is a positive development for Milk Link,” said chief executive Neil Kennedy. “It is very much in line with our strategic objective of making more of our members’ milk by growing our added value processing business and securing greater efficiency.”
