Having recently received planning permission, poultry processor Moy Park has commenced work on extending the capacity of its site at Ashbourne in Derbyshire, England, by 25%. The expansion and upgrading project involves investment of £10m.

Moy Park, which is Northern Ireland’s largest food manufacturer, recently consolidated its standing within the UK poultry market following its £30m acquisition of O’Kane Poultry. Also based in Northern Ireland, O’Kane Poultry had sales of £132m in 2009 and has the capacity to process 120,000 chickens and 5,000 turkeys a day.

The enlarged Moy Park, which is owned by Brazilian meat company Mafrig, employs 8,500 staff, 5,000 of them in Northern Ireland.
