100 jobs go as dairy depot shuts

Have your say

A DAIRY depot in the Lothians is to close with the loss of more than 100 jobs.

Müller Wiseman Dairies has confirmed that it is to wind down its depot operations at Whitburn, with closure of the sites expected before the end of the year.

The decision, prompted by significant reductions in the number of delivery runs from each site, affects 23 posts at Keith and 116 posts at Whitburn and 23 posts at Keith.

Carl Ravenhall, managing director at Müller Wiseman Dairies, said: “We very much regret the impact that this decision will have on these areas but we have to adapt to changes in the way that fresh milk is being distributed.

“It is our hope that colleagues based at Keith and Whitburn will consider taking up positions which will be created in Aberdeen and Cambuslang.”
