McLelland's - a Top Business

WORKERS at a Stranraer creamery had yet another reason to say cheese this week.

McLelland's, owners of the town's Caledonian Cheese Company, have been ranked at number 34 in a prestigious business guide issued by the Sunday Times at the weekend.

The list recognises the 100 companies in the UK with the fastest growing profits.

Apple Corps., the merchandising company behind music legends The Beatles, were aptly number one in the list. McLelland's, however, made number 34 after posting record financial results during 2002. Turnover rose by 34 per cent to £127 million while profits were up by almost two-thirds to £7 million.

The company performance led to the announcement last month of plans for a massive expansion at their Stranraer site.

Now McLelland's say their inclusion in the Sunday Times list is good news for workers in the town as well as local dairy farmers. Joint managing director Alastair Irvine said:

"We are delighted to have been recognised at such a high level and it shows that we are a company definitely going places.

"As we move forward we are continuing to invest in both our facilities and the industry as a whole and only recently have taken a major step in this direction by announcing the new £13 million packing and storing centre in Stranraer".
