Accoring to a Dairy Reorter news story, a spokesperson at Milk Link confirmed that this will include changes and a refocusing of the two long life milk processing facilities at Kirkcudbright, Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland, and Crediton in Devon "in order to deliver greater efficiencies and cost savings."

Kirkcudbright will now focus on producing added value extended shelf life milks such as Mars, Flora Pro.active and Lactofree, cream portions and long life creams.

Crediton will now focus on the production of all of Milk Link's standard long life milk for major retail and food service customers. This will be supported by an investment of over €1.3m (over £1m) in the installation of a state of the art, high speed filler. The improved square pack format can then be extended across a number of major customers and will assist in: "the reinvigorating of the long life milk category."
