In December 2015 First Milk dairy producers in Kintyre formed a working group to explore alternate models for the operation of Campbeltown Creamery. Argyll and Bute Council, with support from Highlands and Islands Enterprise, funded a study to undertake this work. Due to commercial sensitivities and necessity of enlisting the support and cooperation of First Milk it was agreed that the study would not be published in full. However, a presentation of the study's main findings was given to the dairy farmers in late-April 2016. The study considered the company's business plan, capital investment and marketing opportunities. The government maintains close involvement with all parties concerned to see the continuation of cheese-making in Campbeltown.
