UK - The first milk for retail customers has rolled off the filling lines as Arla Foods puts the finishing touches to its new Aylesbury dairy in Buckinghamshire.

Arla Foods started to build the £150 million state-of-the-art dairy in February 2012. It is set to be the world's largest fresh milk facility with the most technologically advanced and efficient processing. The new dairy aims to be zero carbon when it reaches full capacity.

It will have the capacity to process one billion litres of fresh milk, sourced from the cooperative's British dairy farmers.

Peter Lauritzen, CEO, Arla Foods, said: "Our Aylesbury dairy is the largest single investment for the cooperative and, as market leader, Arla is setting the future standard for the dairy industry. We are now beginning to ramp-up our operations."
