Production to stop at Leicestershire stilton specialist

Arla Foods have confirmed production at a Leicestershire dairy could stop.

The business, which runs Melton Mowbray’s Tuxford and Tebbutt Creamery, is proposing to stop production at the site that has operated for nearly 250 years.

Arla Foods is now entering a period of consultation with the stilton specialist’s colleagues. The site employs around 60 people.

It follows a strategic operational review announced in January, following a decline of the speciality cheese market in the UK. At the time Arla Foods said it was looking for possible buyers.
