Westbury at 50% Capacity

Posted on: 30/03/21

Unfortunately, one of the two driers at Arla’s Westbury Plant is out of action due to a breakdown but is expected to be back up and running by Thursday at the latest. 
Arla are temporarily diverting milk to other factories and processors, so the pressure is on but it could be much worse had the breakdown come at peak production. As it is, Arla and cheese makers close to Westbury appear to have balanced the surplus milk without having to sell any on the spot market, which is a great result for Arla given the quantities involved and the fact the spot market is down at 22ppl.
