Wiseman disappointed by southern sites

ROBERT WISEMAN, Scotlands largest dairy company, is reviewing six sites for development as a staging post into the London milk market.

The group intends to invest £30 million in a plant which will service Asda, Tesco and Safeway.

Robert Wiseman, the chairman, is disappointed with the facilities on offer so far, finding most using old production technology.

Wiseman is currently spending £30m developing a dairy in Manchester.

The company reported pre-tax profits of £9.16m in the half-year to 3 October, against £8.65m last time.
