Published:  01 March, 2016

Poultry specialist Moy Park has invested £4 million in its Craigavon facilities in Northern Ireland. 

The move is set to boost its ‘ready to eat’ cooked chicken range and offer opportunities for further improvements and growth.

According to Moy Park, this cooked chicken category represents a key area of growth for the company. The investment is expected to enhance production capabilities and allow for continued innovation in the ever-changing market.

“Moy Park is committed to growing the business through investment in both our industry leading farming and operational facilities,” said Keith Irvine, Moy Park’s supply chain director.

“This investment further cements the company’s position as one of the most advanced producers of ‘ready to eat’ products in the UK and Europe as it enhances our ability to satisfy consumer demand for increasingly innovative, health, convenient and tasty products.”

The investment will allow advanced continuous in-line oven cooking and chilling technology at the company’s Craigavon facilities, as well as delivering energy process efficiencies.

The news comes after a £20m investment at Moy Park’s Dungannon facility, announced towards the end of last year. This investment significantly increased production, delivered technology advancements and efficiencies, and created an enhanced working environment for staff, according to Moy Park.
