The family-run company said a new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility will extend its Bamber Bridge premises from 26,000sq ft to 38,500sq ft.

Summit Foods manufactures a range of cooked meat products, meat-based snacks and quality raw and cooked burger and sausages for foodservice, retail, and manufacture.

And its even more pleasing that we can celebrate our 30th anniversary with the news that we are expanding the business by growing our workforce and expanding our premises.
