Tulip, the UK’s largest pork processor, is to close its Tranfoods factory in Birkenhead with the loss of 214 jobs. Production will be transferred to the company’s King’s Lynn or Bodmin factories.

According to Peter Judge, Tulip’s chief operating officer, the Birkenhead factory is at the end of its economic life. “The Tranfoods site is quite an old site in terms of the operation, by modern manufacturing standards,” he says.”We have capacity within other parts of the Tulip operation where we can do this manufacturing volume without having to invest significant capital in a bid to bring the volume on stream.”

Famous for the Danepak brand, Tulip is the UK’s leading manufacturer of bacon, pork, sausages and cooked meats. The company has a turnover of about Eur1.3 billion and employs more than 6,000 people. Tulip is part of Danish Crown, Europe´s biggest pig slaughtering business and the world’s largest exporter of pork. The UK is Danish Crown’s largest market.
