April 6, 2005, from a BBC
report: The Welsh dairy industry is in “deep crisis,”
as one local politician put it, after a dairy products plant in
Carmarthenshire announced it will close its doors later this year.
The plant owned by the Dairy Farmers of Britain employs two hundred
people in the rural Towy Valley. The closure, retaliation against
poor sales, is expected to have a significant economic impact on
the area. The Dairy Farmers of Britain, whose announcement came
just eight months after obtaining the plant from Associated Co-operative
Creameries, also runs 60 distribution depots and 10 processing plants
across the UK.
