Stirling is the perfect base for dairy businesses

Home to Graham’s Family Dairy, Scotland’s biggest independent milk producer and bestselling butter producer, Stirling offers a range of opportunities to companies who operate, or who could operate, in the dairy sector.

Tapping into the immediately available local liquid milk supply and taking advantage of the wider supply chain strengths of Stirling offers opportunities for researching, developing and producing a range of products across the dairy spectrum.

Businesses operating in the dairy sector have scope to tap into significant domestic and international markets. Domestically there is significant scope for import substitution given the ongoing demand from UK consumers for domestically produced high quality products and, as an island nation, with strong demand for fresh, liquid milk, we have a ready market on our doorstep.

Global demand for premium, healthy products with strong provenance credentials is surging, particularly in dairy.  There is also a significant and growing market worldwide for health-enhancing foods. The health benefits of milk consumption are proven, but there is still huge scope for innovation in dairy to develop new products for this multi-billion pound market.

Scotland’s reputation for world class produce ensures ample opportunity for new and existing businesses to take advantage of the worldwide demand for high quality dairy products. Within Scotland, for all of the reasons outlined above, there is no better location than Stirling from which to take those opportunities.

To further support the dairy sector, a £20m dairy research facility in Stirling is proposed which would provide significant additional benefits to the sector both locally and nationally.
