Credition Dairy, the UK based dairy business has recently announced that it will be investing £12 million in the expansion of its milk-processing capabilities, and in the development of its enriched functional milks. Reportedly, the latest investment comes in line with the company’s strategic focus on emerging as a renowned leader in the dairy industry for producing added-value, flavored milk drinks.
