Cameron hopeful over future of Campbeltown creamery

Highlands and Islands MSP Donald Cameron is hopeful that there will be a positive outcome for Campbeltown Creamery after holding talks on site yesterday (Monday 23rd September). The current owners, First Milk, put the creamery up for sale last year.

Mr Cameron said: “I had a useful meeting with local management and staff about the future of the creamery and I’m hopeful that there will be a positive outcome.

“Local farmers are very keen to ensure that processing capacity is retained in Kintyre, and I am aware First Milk are working closely with potential operators in order to secure its future.

“The creamery makes a significant contribution to the local economy as both a business and an employer, and it is critical that we work together to ensure it continues to do so for many years to come.”
