Tulip invests in Ruskington factory

08 April 2019

Tulip is investing £2.3m in its specialist snacking site at Ruskington to support increased demand for its core traditional products and enhancing its capability to bring new products to market. 

The Lincolnshire factory is the world’s largest Scotch egg manufacturer and the UK’s leading producer of cocktail sausages. It also produces a range of mini-filled bites and seasonal products.
 
The investment will allow the company to create a smaller specialist factory on-site to bring complex niche products developed for retailers by Tulip’s NPD specialists to store quickly and efficiently. This will also provide greater capacity and capability to the production of higher volume lines, better equipping the site to meet the demands for further growth in the snacking category.
 
Commenting on the announcement, Shaun Kay, operations director at Tulip said: “This investment will support the continued growth we have seen in our core product lines thanks to a resurgence in popularity of non-pastry traditional snacks such as Scotch eggs and savoury bites. We are also investing in a dedicated facility and state-of-the-art equipment to support the development of a range of niche products which can be more complex to produce.”
 
Andrew Cracknell, CEO at Tulip, said: “We have recognised how eating habits have changed including a growth in food to go and high protein snacking. Investment in our Ruskington site shows how we are driving growth in the snacking category, offering products containing a variety of protein, flavours and dips to appeal to younger consumers, whilst also future proofing more traditional snacking options. At the same time, this enhanced capability and capacity will ensure outstanding service delivery and quality levels for our customers.
 
“This investment underlines our on-going commitment to the Lincolnshire region and demonstrates continued inward investment into the UK by our parent company Danish Crown. We’re confident that the site will be well placed to help drive our business forward in the years ahead.”
