Avara Foods invests in its people and its operation

29 November 2019

Avara Foods is set to significantly investment in the manufacturing facility and staff at its Hereford site. As part of a company-wide investment programme, local operations are seeing improvements in factory technology, facilities and worker pay and development. 

An investment of over £6.5m over the course of 2019 has seen a suite of new technology installed and production capacity rising by 100,000 chickens per week. This is part of a wider investment programme at the site implemented to increase efficiency and productivity. 

Avara Foods, which is a 50/50 joint venture between Cargill and Faccenda, has also acted on its commitment to be a people business. Investment in new technology is bringing new job opportunities, requiring new skills. Connected to this, the company provides training and development opportunities, including apprenticeships that run from Level 2 to degree level, opening up new ways to earn and learn.

Richard Walden, site manager at Avara Foods, Hereford, said: “Improving our operating infrastructure, increasing productivity and raising pay will improve efficiency, retain our valued colleagues and help make sure we are a sustainable business for the long term. We offer a great range of employee opportunities, ongoing development and training, and we’re excited to welcome new colleagues to our team.
