UK poultry producer Moy Park has announced that it plans to bolster its production sites with a multi-million-pound investment programme.  

Investing over £18mn ($24mn) across a number of its agriculture and processing facilities in the UK, the poultry firm aims to enhance its facility operations and boost production to a record 6mn birds per week in response to growing consumer demand. 

“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,” said Keith Irvine, Supply Chain Director at Moy Park.

“Our customers, rightly, have high expectations and we are focussed on ensuring we meet and exceed those expectations at all times,” he added.

“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.”

Investing around £6mn ($8mn) in its Anwick facility in Lincolnshire, UK, Moy Park has refreshed the factory's layout and installed robotic and automation technology. 

Meanwhile, a £12mn ($16mn) investment is also underway at the company’s Grantham facility, UK, which will see high-tech mixing and processing equipment installed as well as the creation of the company’s first fully contained 'Free From' factory within its Grantham site. 

The investment comes shortly after the poultry company opened a £20mn ($26mn) hatchery in Newark-on-Trent, UK, which, with 2.5mn chicks hatched per week, is the largest single-build hatchery in the UK.
