(Market Drayton / Luxembourg, 04.09.2013) Müller UK & Ireland Group, a subsidiary of Unternehmensgruppe Theo Müller, has today confirmed the acquisition of NOM Dairy UK Limited, including its state-of-the-art production facility in Telford, Shropshire. This move not only secures jobs at the plant, but also forms the basis for the expansion of Müller Dairy's private label business in the UK yoghurt market, which will benefit both Müller Dairy's trading partners and the dairy industry as a whole.

The acquisition continues a series of acquisitions by Müller UK & Ireland Group in the UK. After the drinking milk producer Robert Wiseman Dairies at the beginning of 2012, a production plant for chilled desserts followed in Minsterley in summer 2012. Currently, the Unternehmensgruppe is building the UK's largest butter factory at the Market Drayton site, which will be operational in autumn 2013.

"The acquisition underlines our ambitions to expand our presence in the UK, which is our most important market in the dairy business alongside Germany and the USA. We see great potential in the UK yoghurt private label business. The plant in Telford will enable us to serve customers with excellent products in this important segment," says Heiner Kamps, CEO Unternehmensgruppe Theo Müller.

"With the acquisition of this state-of-the-art production facility, we will not only consolidate our strong market position, but also expand the range of private label yoghurts made from British milk - while reducing the UK's dependence on imported dairy products," said Ronald Kers, CEO Müller UK & Ireland Group. "We have ambitious plans for the future and are very much looking forward to working with the team in Telford and our trade partners to realise the significant potential of this plant," Kers added.

The NOM Dairy UK plant is located on a total area of just under 9 hectares at Donnington Wood and has an annual turnover of around €50 million.
