Motion S4M-10056: Richard Simpson, Mid Scotland and Fife, Scottish Labour, Date Lodged: 14/05/2014
Graham’s Dairy

That the Parliament notes that the Stirlingshire dairy firm, Graham’s, has recorded a 20% increase in turnover in the year ending March 2014; recognises that the firm currently employs 420 people and that its farm base now supports around 80 Scottish dairy farmers; understands that the dairy plans to expand and develop more product lines in cottage cheese and yoghurts due to further investment, which will be complemented by £20 million in new funding support from the RBS; believes that this will enable Graham’s to grow the home market, boost expansion plans and grow business south of the border; welcomes the fact that the firm boosts local employment in the Stirling area, and wishes every success in the future expansion of the company.
