First Milk is not planning to give up its Glasgow headquarters despite the announcement that it will sell all its Scottish creameries.

At the moment, the dairy cooperative has five sites in Britain, creameries in Campbeltown and Arran, which it will put up for sale, the Lake District and Haverfordwest, as well as its head office in Glasgow.

Speculation arose this week that the company may leave its Scottish headquarters to move closer to the factories it will retain, south of the border.

The Courier contacted the company to query this and a spokesperson said: ‘I can confirm that we have no plans to move our head office from its current location near Glasgow Airport.’

The Courier also asked if it wouldn’t make more sense, logistically, to have the head office closer to the English sites but the spokesperson declined to answer the question.
