Published:  26 January, 2017

Moy Park’s multi-million pound investment in its Ashbourne facility has allowed the poultry processor to produce one million chickens per week.

The firm recently completed a £4m investment at the premises. The refurbishment saw the installation of new processing and cutting lines, advanced chilling, software and hardware equipment, as well as an update of its grading and storage areas.
The investment programme has boosted overall production at Ashbourne by a third.

“This £4m investment has allowed us to streamline processes and enhance productivity, ensuring we continue to meet growing demand from customers,” said Colin Grubb, general manager at Moy Park Ashbourne.

“Reaching the milestone of producing one million chickens per week at Ashbourne is a great achievement for the entire team, who not only drive forward industry-leading operational practices but also help us to deliver exemplary service.

“This investment has not only focused on building operational capacity, but has also included investment in people development with our 100 staff taking part in skills training,” he added.
The investment is part of Moy Park’s ongoing development in its business.
