A SCOTTISH dairy has received a £450,000 funding package that will allow it to create up to 12 new jobs across the North-east.

Dundee-headquartered Kerr’s Family Dairy has sets it eyes on an extensive expansion across the region and part of the money will be used to purchase a fleet of 10 extra vans to increase its presence across Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire after it opened a depot in the city last year.

Attracting more than 5,000 new customers within a matter of months, Kerr’s Family Dairy expects to create up to 12 new jobs across the north-east over the next six months.

A fifth-generation family company operating for more than 120 years, the funding boost, from Royal Bank of Scotland, has enabled the firm to purchase and re-locate its main operations to a 4,630 sq ft unit on Ash Street, Dundee.

Following fit-out works, the team will move to the new hub later this year.

Kelvin Kerr Jnr, Kerr’s Family Dairy director, said: “Although the past 12 months has brought many challenges and uncertainty due to the current environment, we are very grateful to find ourselves in a fortunate position as the demand for delivery services soared amid lockdown.

“Between our Dundee and Aberdeen depots, we now serve a customer base of more than 13,000. It’s exceeded our business targets and we’re extremely proud to serve so many communities across the country.”
