Scottish milk processor Robert Wiseman Dairies plans to expand into southern England by opening a distribution depot in the region within the next 12 months.

Finance director at Wiseman Dairies, Billy Keane, told The Independent that
the group first needed to build up its critical mass by supplying 100 million litres of milk annually to supermarkets in the region. Then it would think about building a new processing plant - although this would not necessarily be in the south-east - he added.
