Made in Corsham

Operating from Corsham for the past 30 years, Dalehead Foods is a fully integrated ‘higher welfare’ farming and food business that manages the food production process from farm to fork. The business consists of four manufacturing sites dedicated to serving upmarket retailer Waitrose with pork and lamb products.

Meanwhile, Winterbotham Darby is to open a second plant-based manufacturing facility at its Milton Keynes production site, as part of a £5m investment into its meat alternative brand Squeaky Bean.

The installation of a griller at the new site will open up the ability to develop new product lines, building on the success Winterbotham has found with its Chargrilled Mini Fillets.  The investment has also led to the creation of 100 new jobs.
