Cheese Store for Stranraer

ANOTHER multi-million pound development is planned by the Caledonian Cheese Company in Stranraer.

A massive cheese store nearly 120 metres long and 40 metres wide and capable of storing 10,000 tonnes of cheese will mean at least five more jobs at the home of Seriously Strong cheese.

With two major projects announced and one a cheese packing plant to come, around 60 new jobs will boost the area's employment prospects.

Planners meeting in Newton Stewart were recommended to approve the cheese store project. If the go-ahead is given, the plan is to have the store in operation by the start of next year.

Because the former Galloway Creamery has storage for only 6000 tonnes of cheese, Caledonian Cheese have to mature major stocks elsewhere at present mostly in the Midlands of England. The new store in Stranraer would allow them to retain the vast majority of their output locally. This will be a vital consideration when A. McLelland and Sons Ltd build a state-of-the-art cheese packing plant on vacant land and an existing factory site on the other side of Commerce Road from the creamery.
