Fresh produce packer Elision UK has more than doubled its site capacity by opening a second facility.

The firm, which packs fruit and vegetables, has expanded to a site in Honeybourne, near its current plant in Evesham, Worcestershire. It plans to create up to 30 new jobs over coming months.

Elision business director Lauren Hakes said: “The Honeybourne site will give us the capacity to grow while we continue to develop Elision’s services.”

Packing volumes increase

The additional site increases floor space by nearly 120% and supports a forecast of an almost 70% increase in packing volumes, the company said.

The original site in Vale Business Park, Evesham, has become dedicated to packing salads and supporting a new salad division owned by fresh produce supplier Wellpak UK.

Elision, which employs 40 full-time staff, also provides specialist contract packing of berries, grapes, exotic fruits and vegetables.

Last year Wellpak outsourced its packing and logistic operations to form Elision, which started operations in January 2015.

‘Great start’

Hakes said: “Elision has enjoyed a great start and has made real progress in its first year of operation.

“The second site at Honeybourne will support our plans for growth and lay the foundation for what we have achieved so far.”

Elision works in partnership with highly automated fruit packer Ackio, which is also based in Vale Business Park.
