Bottling plant upgrade set to increase production capacity by 50%

23 October 2020

A major investment programme worth almost £24m is underway at Edible Oils Limited’s (EOL) Erith site, which produces over 100m litres of cooking oil every year. 

The development programme includes significantly upgrading vital infrastructure across the site, boosting production capacity and capabilities, and enhancing efficiency to support growth plans. 
 
As a result of the works, Edible Oils expects to be able to increase its production capacity by around 50% at the site. In addition it will reduce its carbon footprint and introduce new packaging formats across its product range.
 
Edible Oils (a 50/50 joint venture between Princes Ltd and Archer Daniels Midland (ADM) is a producer of packaged oils for the retail sector. 
 
The core investment project at Erith is worth almost £24m and is set to continue over a two-year period, during which the factory will remain fully operational. As part of the project, a new state-of-the-art production line and palletising solution will be installed and commissioned. The works will also involve the construction of a fully enclosed warehouse, a new staff car park with EV charging capabilities, and the development of an expanded dry goods warehouse.
