Councillor Kay Carrington, Executive Member for Business, Enterprise, Economy & Planning welcomed the development and said:
“This large scale storage facility complements the recent increase in capacity at Diageo’s Cameronbridge and Leven facilities and reinforces the real commitment that Diageo is making to Fife. By putting in place the logistics for the distillery, the bottling plant and now the warehousing this reinforces Diageo’s confidence in Fife as a place that is easy to do Business..
“We are really pleased that Diageo has chosen Fife as they looked at numerous other sites across Scotland before making their decision. The company has established good local community involvement and is an excellent employer and this further investment by Diageo will give even greater confidence to the Fife economy.”
