Moy Park in Gonerby Hill Foot is one of the biggest employers in Grantham so this week we feature its general manager Nigel Laing.

The factory produces coated chicken products such as chicken kievs and chicken steaks, and business is going so well Moy Park is currently recruiting more staff.

Mr Laing said: “Once we’ve finished this recruitment process we will employee between 800 and 900 full-time staff, as well as between 250 and 300 temps - so that’s close to 1,100 or 1,200 staff employed on the site.”

Moy Park regularly supports charitable causes, often specifically linked to the Grantham community, such as the Journal Children’s Fund: Christmas Cracker Appeal.

Mr Laing has worked for Moy Park in Grantham for two-and-a-half years.

He said: “It’s important to the culture of this site in particular but also important to our parent companies Moy Park and Marfrig, which is based in Brazil. We like to make sure everything we are doing is involved in the community.”
