Innovation, Investment and Brands

NEW owners of McLelland's Stranraer cheese production and packing facility have placed innovation, investment and brands at the heart of their plans for the creamery.

Speaking at a meeting with the Farmers Creamery Co-operative, Andy Smith managing director of McLelland's stressed the importance of Stranraer to the company's national and international plans.

"The Stranraer facility is now part of a global company and with that comes significant opportunity," he said.

"McLelland can now access new investment through Lactalis and Stranraer will benefit from this. This investment will come in a number of forms. We will be looking to invest in the factory and where it helps, to use knowledge and experience from Lactalis".

Mr Smith added:

"We are also ready to invest just under £3 million in the marketing of Seriously Strong and Galloway cheddar in the UK this year, and we believe that this will boost demand for the products.

"We are also seeking to place the products made at Stranraer at the head of a drive to grow sales of cheddar in overseas markets, through our subsidiaries around the world and through our global customers."
