The future of Grangemouth’s Whyte & Mackay bottling plant looks brighter now interest in the firm is brewing among potential buyers.

The 150 workers at the South Lumley Street plant were unclear whether operations would continue after owners Diageo were told to sell the brand following an investigation by the Office of Fair Trading into competition standards in the drinks industry.

Diageo took ownership of Whyte & Mackay in 2012, spending £344 million to take a controlling 25 per cent interest in India’s United Spirits, but has now been forced to actively market the firm.
