UK poultry company invests £30 million in facility

As part of its strategy for growth, 2 Sisters Food Group, a UK supplier of raw chicken and prepared chicken products is spending £30 million in a state of the art food facility in Thetford, England.

The site will act as the platform for growth for their Prepared Foods Division over the next decade and will open in spring 2011.

“We are very excited about the prospects of opening our new Thetford factory,” said 2 Sisters UK Managing Director, Eddie Power. This will enable us to offer customers an exciting new range of healthy and nutritious coated food products, alongside our existing bestselling lines.”

“Over recent years we have sought to minimise our carbon footprint by reducing our distribution emissions and lowering our energy usage. Thetford will be highly automated with technological and environmental advances that will set the standard in sustainable design and environmental performance.”

“We believe we are the first food business to open a new coated protein factory of this scale in the UK for almost 10 years. Our aim is to deliver significant environmental benefits as well as revolutionise the production of coated foods available in the UK.”
