Bawnbua Foods Wins Major Contracts

Bawnbua Foods Wins Major Contracts

UK-based added value meat supplier, Eurostock Foods, which has recently been rebranded as Bawnbua Foods, has announced new contract wins worth in excess of £10 million. The new contract wins span a variety of customers including international supermarket chains, food manufacturing companies and specialist frozen food retailers.

Over the last three years Bawnbua Foods has invested £2 million in its business and plans to invest a further £1 million throughout 2017 to support its ongoing development. This will create an additional 25 jobs for the company which currently employs around 250 staff across its sites in County Armagh in Northern Ireland and in Wigan in England.

Company turnover has increased by about 30% since 2012, with 2017 already set to be a record year for the business. Much of Bawnbua Foods’ success has stemmed from its strategic focus on new product development and business diversification. This has seen it move from mainly supplying frozen meat products to the UK’s retail sector, to producing an innovative range of quality chilled ready-to-cook meats, chilled slow cooked sous-vide meats and chilled value-added meat products for supermarket chains, food manufacturers and food service customers in the UK and Europe. Bawnbua Foods currently supplies several of Europe’s top 10 retail chains.

Gary White, managing director of Bawnbua Foods, comments: “This latest investment announcement follows on from a £1 million+ investment in a Product Innovation Centre and specialised production equipment at our Lurgan site in 2012, which has enabled us to become a strong supplier in the chilled meat sector. With plans to expand our talented product innovation team this year and new business wins already confirmed, we are excited about developing new ranges which meet and exceed our customers’ expectations, and growing the Bawnbua Foods business worldwide.”

Bawnbua Foods was recently awarded the highest possible recognition for its food manufacturing practices by the British Retail Consortium’s (BRC) Global Standard for Food Safety (Issue 7), achieving Grade A++ accreditation. It is one of the few companies to be 100% compliant with the BRC’s stringent standards.
