Delamere Dairy invests in sustainable model partnership

Delamere Dairy has acquired shares in tannery Billy Tannery and goat meat supplier Cabrito, a move which MD Ed Salt says creates a “Unique model for how dairy businesses should look in the future - honest, transparent, ethical and continually pushing for sustainability.”

Cheshire-based Delamere, which is the UK supplier of award-winning goats’ milk, butter, cheese and yogurt, is responsible for a third of the UK’s goats’ milk. The investment in Billy Tannery – a producer of leather goods from goat hides – and Cabrito, which sources goat meat from Delamere Dairy farms across the UK to supply restaurants, butchers and catering companies, creates a sustainable cycle from milk to meat to leather.

Ed Salt adds, “I genuinely feel we can create a model partnership with each aspect of these three businesses enhancing the other and reducing unnecessary wastage.”
