The move follows a successful year for Meadow Foods, which broadened its product portfolio to include cultured dairy products after the acquisition ofNene Valley Foods in 2009.  Meadow now operates three state-of-the-art manufacturing sites in the UK and has direct relationshipswith a network of 520 dairy farmers – that collectively supply the business with more than 500m litres of milk.

Amy said: “Meadow is one of the few dairy ingredients companies that combines direct farm relationships with its own manufacturing expertise – making it ideally placed to offer genuine advice to customers.”

Ron Middleton, sales director for Meadow Foods, said: “We work hard to ensure that our customers get the best product and service possible.  We have seen strong demand from food manufacturers who want  a comprehensive service to maximise value for money.  By strengthening our team we can capitalise on this growing demand and continue providing a good deal for food manufacturers across the UK.”
