Ready Foods expands with the help of the Welsh government

24 July 2016

A £2m expansion, supported by the Welsh Government, has doubled the size of Ready Foods’ manufacturing facility in Caernarfon and has created more than 25 jobs. 

The expansion is said to mark the first phase of a drive to increase turnover and output, improve efficiencies and reduce costs.
The expansion has doubled the size of the facility, improved the layout and increased capacity with space for future growth. It has also seen the company adopt the latest technology and equipment. 

Ready Foods, part of the Meadow Vale Group, currently produces 70,000 units a day with the aim of increasing this to 150,000 a day within two years.
Managing Director Iwan Thomas said: “We have made a significant investment at our site and have a strong senior management team in place and are creating higher calibre jobs. Support from the Welsh Government was pivotal in taking our plans forward and securing the future of this facility.
“We now plan to increase efficiencies and embark on a programme of continuous improvement and develop the site to increase capacity and sales to meet our customers’ technical requirements for quality, cost and service.”
