Linda Fabiani MSP for East Kilbride has welcomed the news that Robert Wiseman Diaries will continue to manage the business from East Kilbride following acceptance of an offer of £279.5m from Müller.
Linda said “I have been given assurances that Wiseman’s management team will continue to manage the business post acquisition from its headquarters in East Kilbride.
“Müller has given positive assurances about Wiseman’s employees, dairies and distribution network. These points will be discussed when Cabinet Secretary for Rural Affairs and the Environment, Richard Lochhead MSP and I attend a meeting with the management team today.
“Robert Wiseman Diaries is an East Kilbride success story which has seen it rise from a small family dairy to a major company which processes and delivers more than 30% of the fresh milk consumed in Britain every day.
“I am pleased that another family-owned business, Müller, has recognised the strength and potential in Robert Wiseman Dairies and the East Kilbride workforce.
“This move shows real confidence in East Kilbride as we emerge from recession and look towards a brighter and more prosperous future.”
