New UK Joint Venture in Cooked Poultry

New UK Joint Venture in Cooked Poultry

Dartmouth Foods and Faccenda Foods have announced the creation of a new joint venture that will combine the respective skills of the two UK foods businesses and deliver growth, efficiency and a unique proposition for customers. The new venture will retain the Dartmouth Foods name, capitalising on its strong brand and reputation for quality.

Starting with duck, the new joint venture will integrate cooked poultry operations into the Faccenda Foods poultry supply chain. Working together, the arrangement will provide a secure supply, clear provenance and deliver significant increases in capacity and potential for product development. By keeping the length of the supply chain to the absolute minimum, products can be delivered efficiently, making great quality cooked British poultry more accessible to consumers. Ultimately, the venture will offer a unique proposition in the cooked poultry meat sector, being the only UK supplier able to offer cooked British chicken, turkey and duck.

DartmouthFoodsLogoProduction will start this summer in a brand new £10 million facility in Plymouth. Built to meet the highest environmental standards, and with state-of-the-art cooking facilities, the new site will significantly increase capacity and efficiency, opening up potential for new product development. Customers for cooked poultry products will benefit from more products, better quality, with the confidence that comes from a short supply chain.

The new business builds on the successful long term supply agreement that previously existed between Dartmouth and Faccenda Foods and will support the growth ambitions of both businesses.

“This partnership will provide both parties with real opportunities for growth. Being able to deliver products through such a short supply chain is a huge advantage and gives us the security and capacity to provide a unique range of cooked British poultry that our customers will like and consumers will enjoy,” explains Nick Obolensky, joint managing director of Dartmouth Foods.

“A significant proportion of the duck market is in cooked products, and the team at Dartmouth Foods are great at what they do, so working more closely and integrating the cooked operation into the supply chain makes perfect sense.  We believe that consumers will love the quality and taste of our duck and this partnership will enable more of them to try it,” says Andy Dawkins, managing director of Faccenda Foods.
