Popular Conwy dairy is a fantastic example of rural entrepreneurship


Llyr Gruffydd MS has hailed a dairy in the Conwy valley as a “fantastic example of rural entrepreneurship” and was full of praise for Llaethdy Plas Isa Dairy, in Llansanffraid, when he went there on a constituency visit.


The burgeoning company has a vending machine which is located near the pitch at Glan Conwy Football Club, which is just off the A470, it supplies a local milk round, as well as local stores

It produces full fat, semi-skimmed, and skimmed milk, as well as milk in a variety of flavours, including banana, chocolate and strawberry flavours.


The dairy, which has become a huge hit with locals since it was launched four years ago when the Jones family decided to set up a dairy on their Glan Conwy farm and sell directly to the public.

Rachael Jones and her husband Huw invested in much-needed specialist equipment such as a pasteurisation unit, which means their milk can be pasteurised on the farm. They also built a large extension on their dairy and installed a cool room.


Llŷr Gruffydd said:

“It was a pleasure to visit Llaethdy Plas Isa Dairy to find out more about the business and how it is innovating and how it is serving the local community.

“Their milk and their milkshakes are hugely popular and it’s no wonder because the taste is delicious.


“What Rachael and Huw have already achieved with Llaethdy Plas Isa Dairy is a fantastic example of rural entrepreneurship and I’m looking forward to seeing how the business develops in the future.

“They are investing in their business, in local people and in their community which is wonderful see. This helps ensure that the local community can remain vibrant and they’re making fantastic wholesome products while they’re at it.


“It is vital that the Welsh Government does all it can to support businesses such as this.”
