As part of its strategy for growth, UK chicken processor 2 Sisters Food Group is spending £30 million on a state-of-the-art food factory in Thetford. The site will act as the platform for growth for the company’s prepared foods division over the next decade and will open in spring 2011.

Eddie Power, UK managing director of 2 Sisters.

“We are very excited about the prospects of opening our new Thetford factory. This will enable us to offer customers an exciting new range of healthy and nutritious coated food products, alongside our existing bestselling lines,” says Eddie Power, UK managing director of 2 Sisters. “Over recent years we have sought to minimise our carbon footprint by reducing our distribution emissions and lowering our energy usage. Thetford will be highly automated with technological and environmental advances that will set the standard in sustainable design and environmental performance.”

He continues: “We believe we are the first food business to open a new coated protein factory of this scale in the UK for almost ten years. Our aim is to deliver significant environmental benefits as well as revolutionise 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.

2 Sisters is the core business of Boparan Holdings, which is controlled by food business entrepreneur Ranjit Singh Boparan. Of course, Boparan recently made a £342m bid for UK chilled convenience food group Northern Foods. Boparan already owns 11.4% of Northern Foods.
