our milky twist journey by the s3 enterprise and employability class at eastbank academy glasgow
Our ‘Milky Twist’ journeyBy the S3 Enterprise and Employability class at Eastbank Academy, Glasgow

We also visited Wiseman’s Dairy at Bellshill

We learnt:

The skills you need to work there

What jobs are available

How milk gets from the dairy to your fridge

We learnt from one of the best in the business: Barry Cuthbertson, Wiseman’s Sales and Marketing Manager

We made a smoothie, with ice-cream and fruit

At the moment we are using blueberries but the fruit can be adjusted depending on seasonal availability

“We chose blueberries for our first sale because when we completed our market research, we had a positive response”

Melissa Gray, Production

Now we have Government endorsement, we are hoping to raise more money for our charities:

Help the Heroes and the Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice

We’d now like to show you a short video telling you what we’ve learned and our jobs within our business
