Milk giants are set to invest £5million to improve facilities and efficiency at a dairy.

Dairy Crest will inject the capital into its Dagenham dairy in Chadwell Heath to fund a number of improvement projects.

The site is one of the firm’s “three key dairies” following the closure of two others in Liverpool and Cambridge last year.

“The site is going from strength to strength,” said a Dairy Crest spokesman.

“The expenditure will update and improve facilities on the site and generally make us more efficient. It demonstrates our commitment to our Chadwell Heath dairy.”
