2 Sisters Invests in New Coated Factory

14 February 2011

UK - As part of its strategy for growth, UK poultry proxessor 2 Sisters Food Group is spending £30 million in a state-of-the-art food facility in Thetford.

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

2 Sisters Food Group said it strives to be the highest quality food manufacturer at lowest cost and through continual investment in facilities, the company has been able to adapt to change and offer people more for less.

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

“We expect the new site to generate over 100 jobs when it opens, with the potential of another 200 jobs in the future.”
