Moy Park, which is one of the UK’s largest poultry producers, has announced an investment of over £18 million across a number of its sites in Lincolnshire. The investments form part of the company’s ongoing strategic investment programme which is focused on enhancing operations across its agriculture and processing facilities, boosting production to a record 6 million birds per week in response to growing customer demand.

Moy Park Supply Chain Director Keith Irvine says: “We are committed to continued investment in our production facilities to ensure that we are able to lead the industry in innovation, food safety, quality and efficiency. Our customers, rightly, have high expectations and we are focussed on ensuring we meet and exceed those expectations at all times. These investments in state-of-the-art processes will enable us to take another large step forward as a business and will provide fantastic development opportunities for our people.”

At its Anwick facility in Lincolnshire, Moy Park has completed a £6 million investment which saw the company refresh the factory’s layout and install state-of-the-art equipment including robotic and automation technology. A £12 million investment is also underway at the company’s nearby Grantham facility which will see the installation of new, high-tech mixing and processing equipment as well as the creation of Moy Park’s first fully contained “Free From” factory within the Grantham site.

This latest announcement from Moy Park follows the opening of a £20 million state-of-the-art hatchery at Newark-on-Trent in Nottinghamshire by the firm. Hatching 2.5 million chicks per week, it is the largest single-build hatchery in the UK.

Moy Park recently achieved a major production milestone, by producing 6 million birds per week for the first time in its 75 year history. The company has increased production by 20% since 2015 and now supplies 30% of the total UK poultry market.

Moy Park has 12 processing facilities in Northern Ireland, England, France and Holland and works in partnership with over 800 dedicated farming partners across the UK, who supply poultry to the company.
