The UK’s 2 Sisters Food Group, a supplier of raw and prepared chicken products, is spending GBP30 million (US$48.4 million) on a state of the art food facility in Thetford.
Managing director Eddie Power commented: “We are very excited about the opening of our new Thetford factory. This will allow us to offer customers an exciting new range of healthy and nutritious coated food products, alongside our existing bestselling lines.
“We believe we are the first food business to open a new coated protein factory of this scale in the UK for almost 10 years. Our aim is to deliver significant environmental benefits as well as revolutionize the production of coated foods available in the UK.” The new site is expected to generate over 100 jobs when it opens, with the potential of another 200 jobs in the future.
