Pensilva Muller Wiseman Dairies Confirms Closure
1:25pm 20th June 2014
58 jobs go as Muller Wiseman Dairies confirms it is closing its Pensilva depot.
The decision was prompted by a substantial reduction in milk supplied from the depot and changes in customer requirements.
Distribution will be gradually handed over to Bridgwater in Somerset.
Dairy farmers and milk supplies in Cornwall will not be affected.
Carl Ravenhall, Managing Director at Müller Wiseman Dairies said: "Great credit is due to the team at Pensilva who have handled the situation the depot finds itself in professionally and remained focused on delivering an excellent service to our customers.
"The whole team, together with union representatives worked extremely hard to find ways of addressing the challenges facing this depot, but unfortunately we have been unable to establish an economic basis for continuing to distribute milk from Pensilva.
"Our priority is to support those who are affected by this decision and we will be working with local agencies to ensure that each individual has access to the services which are available."1:25pm 20th June 2014
