£2m Business Expansion Will Benefit Shaftesbury School Leavers, Jobseekers And Farmers

Shaftesbury’s BV Dairy has announced a £2m expansion plan.

The food production sector has changed during the lockdown and BV’s finance director, Vaughan Heard, says the new equipment will enable the dairy to meet future customer needs and attract new clients. He says this investment is ‘great news’ for the thirty Shaftesbury-area farmers who supply milk to the dairy.
