Dairy Crest: In good shape with consumer focused innovation

Issue 1 2010, Past issues  •  22 February 2010  •  Arthur Reeves, External Affairs Director, Dairy Crest

Three years ago, Dairy Crest, the UK’s leading dairy company, stepped up its commitment to innovation and adopted new strategies aimed at bringing products to market quicker. The start of a new decade is a good time to evaluate whether this increased focus and change of emphasis has been successful.

Dairy Crest owns three of the most successful dairy brands in the UK, Cathedral City (cheese), Clover (dairy spreads) and Country Life (butter). It also supplies approximately one third of the country’s fresh milk through its doorstep delivery service and sales to the major retailers and to smaller food service customers.

Implementing food safety and hygiene

Issue 3 2005, Past issues  •  29 July 2005  •  Dr Ken Burgess, Technical Director, Dairy Crest

Responsibility for safety from ‘farm to fork’ is obviously shared between farmers, manufacturers and processors, distributors, consumers and various government authorities. The perspective of the manufacturer is in ensuring that known food safety risks are managed and controlled, while the areas of new and emerging food safety risk have traditionally been the government’s domain. However, in recent years, the retailer has joined the manufacturer in taking responsibility for food safety in the factory and both have become more involved in assessing and managing potential new issues.
