Yeo Valley

Yeo Valley are manufacturers of premium dairy products located in Somerset, England, with operations spanning six sites across the South West region.

Whilst Yeo Valley are well known as a manufacturer of premium dairy products they also have a very strong IT team who had identified the need for digital signage as a communications mechanism many years earlier and developed an in-house system. This system had become a resource drain and as a result they evaluated different commercial packages available.

In 2011, Yeo Valley selected Sedao to deploy their digital signage solution across all sites.
