The article reports on the possibility that the Dairy Crest Direct (DCD) Aspatria cheese plant will be divided after five potential buyers contended to secure the 270 million litres of milk in January 2007. DCD member dairy farmers are looking for a new space for their milk after the Dairy Crest sold the cheese plant to co-operative First Milk in 2006. Caledonian Cheese offered the best milk price to the members at approximately 18 pound per litre.
