The article announces that Robert Wiseman Dairies has taken on a contract to supply the Cooperative Retail Trading Group's stores in south-east England. The contract was held by Dairy Farmers of Britain (DFoB), but DFoB announced its resignation on July 29, 2008 after concerns that the direct supply to store arrangement was too expensive. DFoB would close its Poyle distribution centre near Heathrow and also reduce staff at its Portsmouth dairy and depot.
