Speaker: Jim Highnam, Managing Director, BV Dairy
BV Dairy was established in 1958 and has come a long way since their award winning Clotted Cream was sold in the local area. Now run by the third generation of the Highnam family both the business and the range of specialty products has grown and developed to form one of the most respected and successful independent dairies in the South West of England today. The long term sustainability of the dairy supply chain in and around North Dorset is very important to BV Dairy and the company operate 2 renewable energy projects in conjunction with the dairy processing operation.
Jim joined his father, Chris, at the dairy in 1991. Jim’s passion for the business and the farming community shines through all that the dairy does. Jim’s background is in the production and technical aspects of the business, having studied Food Science at the University of Reading (many years ago!), but his current role is now broader.
