The final phase of our expansion plan nears completion
Wednesday, 15th July 2020
We're pleased to report that the final phase of our expansion plan to increase capacity and create new jobs is nearing completion. The £3.3 million poultry factory extension project will increase capacity by 20% and create 15 new jobs in our sales and marketing, processing and distribution departments.
Our MD, Nigel Upson said: “Over the last three years, we have invested several million pounds to make improvements to our factory, the team’s working conditions and our farms. Improvements to the effluent plant, energy store, lairage, chiller, packing and portioning rooms have been made, and our new flagship farm at Horn Hill is now complete. Maintenance Manager, Bestwn (Bisto) Kdr has also done a great job of fabricating bespoke collecting bins for the packing room from sheet steel.
“By the end of the summer, we will have completed work on the effluent collection sump, the offal collection shed, cladding to the rear of the building and the installation of new machinery to improve quality.
“All of these changes will help us to manage future growth and to maintain and exceed the highest standards of presentation and taste that has won us many awards over the years.”
Our marketing team have also made improvements to labelling to highlight the name of the farmer on each pack of whole chickens and portions.
