A visit to the Isle of Man Creamery and an overview from the Managing Director Findlay MacLeod. Another Farmers cooperative that seems to be working well within the island maintaining a milk price that unlike the UK is at least sustainable on an industry basis. We currently have 31 Dairy Farmers on island down from 86, 15 years ago. Many of these units are larger and more efficient producing twenty four and a half million litres of milk a year, six and a half of which are sold in liquid form on the island, whilst the rest turned into around 1800 tones of cheese, which I am glad to say is sold around the world.
