United Kingdom-based poultry supplier  2 Sisters Food Group has made plans to open a £30 million production facility in Thetford that is expected to generate over 100 area jobs when it opens this spring, with another 200 jobs possible in the future.

The site will act as a platform for growth for the company's prepared foods division over the next decade. “Over recent years we have sought to minimize our carbon footprint by reducing our distribution emissions and lowering our energy usage," said UK Managing Director Eddie Power. "Thetford will be highly automated with technological and environmental advances that will set the standard in sustainable design and environmental performance.”
