How we’ve been supporting our clients, Kerr’s Dairy

Category: Food & DrinkLeisure - Posted On: Sep 17 2020

Despite the challenges faced due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many businesses have continued with their plans for growth.

That was the case for one of our clients, Kerr’s Dairy, a family run Dundee-headquartered business that supplies the finest quality dairy products direct to your door. Founded by Sandy Kerr in 1900, the business has spanned five generations and with Kelvin Kerr Jr. being made Director in 2012, working alongside his father, Kelvin Snr, the company has continued to thrive.

Kerr’s Dairy have been clients of EQ since 2015, and have developed a close working relationship with our Partner, David Morrison who fully understands their vision and plans for the future.

Kelvin Jr. commented,

“With people looking to reduce their plastic use, our glass bottle sales have surged and as well as an influx of customers in and around the Dundee area, we were also receiving enquiries from those living in and around Aberdeen. We spoke to David and the team about our plans to expand the business and after looking through all the options, we were finally in the position to move into the Aberdeen area this year to meet that local demand. We really value the advice David and the team provide, giving us reassurance that we are doing the right thing and we know they will continue to offer their support moving forward.”

David added,

“Our team have provided advisory support to the Kerr family on all matters and when Kelvin came to talk to us about expanding the business, we looked into the various options. Knowing the current business model made it easier for us to advise on the issues of running a second site, including looking at leasing options for a depot in Aberdeen as well as for six new vans. It’s been a pleasure to work with such a forward thinking, family run, local business and I look forward to continuing to offer our support and advice for years to come.”

As well as expanding the business, lockdown restrictions means that Kerr’s Dairy have been securing hundreds of new customers a week, but continue to deliver a high quality, efficient service with their dedicated workforce whose commitment has made the expansion as smooth as possible.
