Tims’ yo­gurt cul­ture ex­pands

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A FAM­ILY yo­gurt mak­ers based in Chal­font St Pe­ter and Lit­tle Chal­font have in­vested in their dairy to ex­pand the site and fa­cil­i­tate in­creased pro­duc­tion of their award-win­ning yo­gurt range.

Tims Dairy first moved into Chal­font St Pe­ter from Lon­don in 1996, tak­ing on the Mopes Farm site, in Den­ham Lane, where they have con­tin­ued to grow the busi­ness.

Over the years they have in­vested in new plant and tech­nolo­gies, mod­ernised the site and, more re­cently, a well-sup­ported project to ex­pand.

This has in­creased pro­duc­tion ca­pac­ity and en­hanced the process from pro­duc­tion to de­liv­ery.

Manag­ing direc­tor Chris Ti­moth­eou said: “The project to ex­pand the dairy has been a chal­lenge for us, but we have al­ways had this vi­sion for our fam­ily busi­ness and we are de­lighted with the end re­sult.

“We are al­ways happy to work with the lo­cal com­mu­nity and we Tims Dairy is ex­pand­ing its site are de­lighted that this also gives us the chance to of­fer more lo­cal em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties.

“Find­ing the right part­ner that un­der­stood our needs was cru­cial and lo­cal com­pany TSL Projects helped us. They changed the build­ing spec­i­fi­ca­tion and pro­vided a phased ap­proach to our project, and work­ing with the on­site man­age­ment team from TSL was a real plea­sure.”

Op­er­a­tions direc­tor Pe­ter Ti­moth­eou said: “They had a can-do at­ti­tude and dealt with mod­i­fi­ca­tions in a pro­fes­sional and con­struc­tive way. TSL de­liv­ered a first class fa­cil­ity which we are proud of.

“There is a team of 70 peo­ple in­clud­ing drivers, engi­neers, pro­duc­tion and sales. It is a great work­ing en­vi­ron­ment with ev­ery­body shar­ing the fam­ily pas­sion for great tast­ing yo­gurt.”
