Update On Saputo

25 Jul

A spokesperson from Carmarthenshire County Council gave us the following news:

Dansco Dairy Ltd acquired SAPUTO early June. Dansco Dairy Ltd are a wholly owned subsidiary of Dairy Partners Ltd.  Dairy Partners Ltd are based in Stonehouse, Gloucs, one of the market leaders in the dairy industry. They manufacture and process cheese, wholesale and distribute to all the main supermarket chains within the UK and with a strong export market.

Staff numbers have reduced from 67 to 25 through both voluntary and involuntary redundancies.

The intention of the new company is to continue shredding mozzarella on site. They wish to recover the milk from local farmers for production on site. They also have major plans for investment in 2014 on site to manufacture and process a dairy product not presently manufactured within the UK. Following the aforementioned then there is every sign of future potential employment in Newcastle Emlyn mid 2014.

The new Company has been awarded a grant by the Welsh Government for the major investment.

Well let’s hope this is a wag investment that pays off!

    Glad to hear something is happening to the site as it looks deserted at the moment.

    A loss of 52 jobs in this area is dreadful little chance of those people wanting work, finding work.
