STORY: MILLBROOK DAIRY ENTERS TRADE BAKERY SECTOR AS IT EXPANDS INTO BUTTER MARKET
Devon-based, fast-growing innovative dairy business, Millbrook Dairy Company, has entered the trade bakery sector with its expansion into the trade butter market.
The business, which recently announced a 30% increase in turnover in 2021/2022 compared to the previous year with revenues up from £20m to £26m, is increasing its presence within professional bakery market by focusing on selling bulk butter into bakeries, patisseries and food service.
The company, which was founded in 2019 by respected dairy industry experts, David Evans and Kevin Beer, supplies a diverse range of premium quality British and Irish cheese to a growing home market and international customer base.
The move into the trade butter market and its focus on the trade bakery sector is another major step in the company's journey of growth and development.
Key to the company’s butter range for the trade bakery sector is the 25kg bulk butter (salted, unsalted, frozen and fresh). This is in addition to their popular individual butter portions, which are known as ‘size seven’ and can be between 5.8g and 7g each, as well as 250g packs.
Millbrook Dairy works closely with a number of butter brands including Shirgar Welsh Butter, a traditional Welsh flavoursome butter from Carmarthenshire.
Kevin Beer, Co-founder of Millbrook Dairy Company said:
“The expansion into the trade butter market and the professional bakery sector is a significant step in our growth plan. We work with cream producers, blenders and packers to maintain competitive pricing and premium quality for our trade butter customers.”
