Shareholders of Peninsula Milk Processors have voted in favour of the proposed acquisition by Milk Link. The takeover by the farmer-owned dairy co-operative further strengthens its operations.

Peninsula is based in Okehampton, Devon, and produces fresh milk and clotted cream for major retail, catering and manufacturing customers.

Barry Nicholls, Milk Link’s chief executive, said: “We are delighted to have acquired Peninsula Milk Processors’ new, well invested production facilities located right in our membership heartland.”
