“I would like to thank everyone who has contributed to Dairy Crest’s Dairies business over the years.  Together we have built a business of which we can be proud and which has an exciting future under Müller’s ownership.  Special thanks go to those people who have worked so hard over the Christmas period to ensure that the sale could proceed on Boxing Day.
