Stapleton closes its doors after 45 years of production
7th September 2020
It is with great regret that we have made the difficult decision to stop producing yogurt, ice cream and milk at the end of summer 2020.
It is with great regret that we have made the difficult decision to stop producing yogurt, ice cream and milk at the end of summer 2020. Stapleton was founded in the Autumn of 1975 and we have had great joy, satisfaction – even fun at times – making lovely products for you all to enjoy over the years. However, the changes which have taken place in the marketplace and general economy over the past couple of years has made it incredibly challenging for us to continue producing food at the standard at which we feel content whilst also maintaining an up-to-date and efficient dairy. We have therefore decided to shut our doors and with heavy hearts say farewell to Stapleton.
We want to take this opportunity to thank you all for your support over the past 45 years and in particular during the extreme lockdown period. Lots of our local shops and distributors really rallied around to increase volumes with local suppliers like us. This has really helped us to get through the summer without an emergency closure and for this we are deeply grateful.
