CLEGG Food Projects has been awarded a £9 million contract by the UK’s leading supplier of fresh eggs.



A new state-of-the-art free range egg packing facility will be built by Nottingham-based Clegg Food Projects at Witney, near Oxford for its client – Noble Foods.



Clegg Food Projects provides solutions for major food operations all over the country, including design, engineering, specialist construction and consultancy.



Noble Foods is the number one supplier of fresh eggs to major retailers across the country and the provider of happy egg – the UK’s leading egg brand.



John Moxon, business development director at Clegg Food Projects, said: “We are delighted to be working on such a significant building contract for a leading company in the food industry.



“This is a large-scale specialist construction project and our skills and vast experience of delivering schemes of this size mean we are ideally placed to meet the requirements of this contract.



“We always ensure we work very closely with our clients. We have already participated in a collaborative value engineering programme with Noble Foods and look forward to strengthening our successful working relationship with them,” John added.



Richard Stowey, project director at Noble Foods, said: “We selected Clegg Food Projects due to the professionalism and competitiveness of their tender return. This was vital as we look to build an industry leading free range egg packing centre, where we will pack our customer brands and happy egg.”



The new factory will be used to receive and pack free range eggs.  It will include machines that sort and then pack eggs before they are delivered to retailers.


Lead consultant for the scheme is Harrison Pitt Architects, which is based in Lancaster.


Work on the scheme will be completed by Clegg Food Projects in early 2014.


Clegg Food Projects is a nationally known designer, constructor and engineer of food manufacturing facilities with more than 30 years’ experience in the sector. Clegg Food Projects is a national company and part of the Clegg Group.
