“We are working closely with the Environment Agency to address the concerns that have been raised and recent improvements at the waste water treatment plant are already starting to make a real difference.
“We will continue to consult with the EA and the local community to ensure we are addressing their concerns.
“Davidstow is central to our business and Dairy Crest is committed to playing a positive role in the community as an employer, as a customer of local farmers and as a good neighbour.”
