Poultry processor Moy Park has invested over £18m across a number of its sites in Lincolnshire as part of its strategy to improve production.

The spend forms 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 six million birds per week in response to growing customer demand.

At Moy Park’s Anwick facility in Lincolnshire, the processor has completed a £6m investment to refresh the factory’s layout and install state-of-the-art equipment, including robotic and automation technology.

Meanwhile, a £12m investment is also under way 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.

State-of-the-art hatchery

This follows the opening of a £20m 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. The business also recently appointed former Greencore US boss Chris Kirke as president​.

Moy Park supply chain director Keith Irvine said: “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 focused 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.”
