Mike Smith, Farmer Director and Vice-Chairman, emphasized how this strategic move builds on First Milk's existing strengths, providing additional value for its members and creating new opportunities for colleagues. The acquisition also allows the extension of regenerative positioning into a broader range of dairy products and customers, marking a significant step forward in securing the future.
