British food manufacturer 2 Sisters Food Group has invested in four new low-energy farms that will house an extra 6 million birds a year, according to the company.
During the past 12 months, 2 Sisters has introduced more than 700,000 square feet of new poultry housing. The latest additions will allow for more efficient ventilation, heating and lighting management, according to the company. “Climate change remains a hot topic for us, and we want to play our part in helping to manage CO² emissions and use energy more efficiently while still growing our business," said a 2 Sisters spokesman. “These new chicken houses offer the potential to lower energy usage and prevent unnecessary heat loss at farm level."
