Arla Foods, the Danish dairy company, announced that it will create a UK facility for manufacturing lactose-free milk. In total, the facility will cost $32.8 million USD to build, and it will be located in Settle, North Yorkshire. The site will be able to produce 120m liters of product, and it will create 50 new jobs in Settle. The new facility will improve the company's capabilities to serve the UK market, as previously Arla Foods would have to transport lactose -free products into the region from Denmark.
The lactose-free milk produced by Arla Foods is one of the most popular in the region, and the company states that it has, "gone from strength to strength." Arla Foods also noted that its lactose-free milk is now being used at Costa, which is one of the most successful coffee chains in the country.
