Moy Park Dungannon marks 40 year milestone with major £20m investment

21 August 2015

Top UK food company Moy Park is celebrating 40 years of operation at its Dungannon facility.  

This milestone coincides with the completion of the first phase of a major £20m investment at the facility, significantly enhancing production capabilities to become one of the most advanced processing plants in Europe.

This investment programme has seen production increase significantly at Dungannon from 1.3m to 1.8m birds per week; a figure which will increase to 2.3m birds per week upon full completion.
Moy Park UK and Ireland Director Alan Gibson said: “We are delighted to mark 40 years of production at Dungannon with this major investment programme. Phase one has been extremely successful, enabling us to grow production significantly over the last year and provide an optimum level of service to our customers.  This investment brings technology advancements and production efficiencies, and has also created an enhanced working environment for staff – a number of whom have been with Moy Park Dungannon since it opened 40 years ago.  These enhancements provide the perfect platform for the team to celebrate this important birthday! ”

General Manager at Moy Park Dungannon, Ronnie Newell, has worked at the factory since it opened in 1975. He said: “I am very proud to be part of a team which has continually advanced and grown this facility over the past 40 years. When Moy Park opened the Dungannon plant, we processed 120,000 birds per week and had around 150 employees. Today, we are processing around 1.8m birds per week here and have 2,000 employees.”
