Jersey Dairy has relocated its headquarters and processing plant to Trinity after 40 years based in Five Oaks, St Saviour.

The new dairy, next to the Royal Jersey Showground, began operating earlier after taking 10 months to build.

Andrew Le Gallais, Chairman of the Milk Marketing Board, said the new plant would enable product expansion.

The board said new processing equipment meant products could be expanded to include custards and ice creams.

The dairy's head of marketing and sales Christopher Journeaux said: "Technology has moved on since the Five Oaks dairy was built in the 1960s where the site offered us little ability to adapt to changes in the dairy industry."

The sale of the old site to developer Dandara had provided full funding for the new dairy.

Eamon Fenlon, the dairy's managing director, said: "Being close to the headquarters of the Royal Jersey Horticultural and Agricultural Society and the base of the World Jersey Cattle Bureau is a logical and hugely beneficial place for us all to be and we are looking forward to working together."
