Following the Court hearing in September 2021 when Dairy Crest Limited pleaded guilty to offences for breaches to its Environmental Permit at the Davidstow Creamery dating back to 2016, the Company was today ordered by the Court to pay a fine of £1.52 million.
Once again, the Company would like to express its sincere apologies to those who have been affected. Considerable work has been undertaken to rectify the historic issues to which the prosecution related. The Company continues to invest significant resources in the best technology, processes and people to further improve its environmental performance and minimise its impact on the local community.
As the largest employer in North Cornwall, the Company remains committed to supporting its local communities and becoming a better neighbour.
