Leading UK food company Moy Park has announced a significant £4 million investment in its facilities at Craigavon, Northern Ireland positioning its ‘ready to eat’ cooked chicken production for further innovation and growth.

According to Moy Park, the ‘ready to eat’ cooked chicken category represents a key growth area. The investment will enhance production capabilities and allow for continued innovation in this fast moving category.

Speaking about the investment, Keith Irvine, Moy Park’s Supply Chain Director, said:

“Moy Park is committed to growing the business through investment in both our industry leading farming and operational facilities.  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, healthy, convenient and tasty products.”

This latest investment will see advanced continuous in-line oven cooking and chilling technology installed at Moy Park’s Craigavon facilities and will also deliver energy and process efficiencies.

The development at Craigavon follows a £20 million investment in Moy Park’s Dungannon facility which was announced in late 2015. The investment at Dungannon significantly increased production, delivered technology advancements and efficiencies, and also created an enhanced working environment for staff.
