Creamline Dairies and Morton Dairies may buy the northwest England milk delivery business of Dairy Crest, a sale that would help Dairy Crest shrink its exposure to certain markets, that company said. Creamline would operate in the Manchester area while Mortons would manage business in Liverpool and Wirral. The sale "would be another step on our journey towards restoring our dairies business to a 3% operating margin in the medium term," said Dairy Crest CEO Mark Allen.
