Company Overview

Dairy Crest is a leading British dairy company. Fundamental to its business is the high quality milk which is supplied by approximately 330 farmers in Devon and Cornwall who supply exclusively to the company. Its production, packaging and distribution facilities in Davidstow and Nuneaton are two of the most advanced of their kind, enabling it to deliver unrivalled quality and consistency. It has a track record of investing in manufacturing excellence; most recently at its demineralised whey and galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS) facilities at our Davidstow site in Cornwall.
