Arran Dairies celebrates 40 years in business

Fouth generation means it is a real family affair

One of the oldest family firms on the island, Arran Dairies, is celebrating 40 years in business.

It was set up in 1978 by Russell Dobson and his wife Sheila, and is now in its fourth generation of family members. But the Dobson family tradition on Arran goes back a whole lot farther, as the family first began farming at West Knowe in Brodick in 1937.

The firm is now run by Alastair Dobson and the company recently held a birthday lunch at the Auchrannie to celebrate the milestone with their employees and to thank customers, suppliers and supporters over the years.

Alastair told the lunch: ‘I am extremely proud to be currently leading Arran Dairies, especially as we are now into our fourth generation of family members now that I see Susan and my children and Russell and Sheila’s grandchildren joining the business – Matthew in production and management, Hannah about to return to support me with Taste of Arran, and Ross who comes in to help out when he can.
