Moy Park in £12Million Grantham investment




Major UK food company Moy Park has announced an investment of over £18 million across a number of its sites in Lincolnshire, inclusing £12 million in Grantham.

The investments form part of the company’s ongoing strategic investment programme which is focused on enhancing operations across its agriculture and processing facilities, boosting production to a record 6 million birds per week in response to growing customer demand.

Moy Park Supply Chain Director Keith Irvine said: "

“We are committed to continued investment in our production facilities to ensure that we are able to lead the industry in innovation, food safety, quality and efficiency. Our customers, rightly, have high expectations and we are focussed on ensuring we meet and exceed those expectations at all times. These investments in state of the art processes will enable us to take another large step forward as a business and will provide fantastic development opportunities for our people.”

At its Anwick facility, near Sleaford, Moy Park has completed a £6 million investment which saw the company refresh the factory’s layout and install state-of-the-art equipment including robotic and automation technology.

A £12 million investment is also underway at the company’s nearby Grantham facility which will see the installation of new, high-tech mixing and processing equipment as well as the creation of Moy Park’s first fully contained “Free From” factory within the Grantham site.

This latest announcement from Moy Park follows the opening of a £20 million state-of-the-art hatchery at Newark-on-Trent in Nottinghamshire by the firm. Hatching 2.5 million chicks per week, it is the largest single-build hatchery in the UK.
