New Farmer Directors Appointed

South Caernarfon Creameries has recently appointed two new member farmers to the Board of Directors for a three year term.

The Co-operative’s Board includes five milk producer elected Directors whom are nominated by the producing member farmers. Each farmer Director is elected from one of the four milk collection regions in North Wales and Mid Wales. Members Osian Williams and Malcolm Davies were appointed to the Board of Directors at the co-operative’s recent AGM.

Osian Williams, who farms with his family in Llannefydd, Denbigh has been a member of the award-winning co-operative since 2006. Malcolm Davies farms with his family in Dinas on the Llyn Peninsula.

Commenting following their appointment, “South Caernarfon Creameries stands in a very positive position for the future due to the hard work and commitment of its staff. The investment the co-operative has made provides us with a strong platform for existing and future business. There is great potential for the co-operative to further extend business and undertake additional supply contracts and continue to grow and develop its quality sales book.”

“We are honoured to have been elected and able to represent the current membership. South Caernarfon Creameries is a forward-thinking business that works closely with its members to safeguard our future and deliver all-important growth and sustainability for member farmers and the Creamery alike.”

Alan Wyn-Jones, Managing Director at South Caernarfon Creameries said “It is vital that our member farmers have a voice in the running of the Creamery and our Directors are a conduit for key decision-making. We are therefore pleased to welcome Malcolm and Osian to the Board of Directors. They will be a great asset to the Board and have a very commercial outlook to business which is what’s required in our very competitive industry.”
