Moy Park invests in ready to eat chicken production

08 March 2016

Moy Park will invest £4 million to enhance production of ready to eat chicken. 

The poultry manufacturer will add continuous in-line oven cooking and chilling technology installed at its site in Craigavon, Northern Ireland. 

The company believes the ready to eat segment is a growth area and the investment will position it for further innovation. 

“Moy Park is committed to growing the business through investment in both our industry leading farming and operational facilities,” said Keith Irvine, Moy Park’s supply chain director.

“This investment further cements the company’s position as one of the most advanced producers of ready to eat products in the UK and Europe as it enhances our ability to satisfy consumer demand for increasingly innovative, healthy, convenient and tasty products.”

The development at Craigavon follows a £20 million investment in Moy Park’s Dungannon facility announced in late 2015. 

In a statement the company said the Dungannon investment “significantly increased production, delivered technology advancements and efficiencies, and also created an enhanced working environment for staff”.
