Leading pork producer, Pilgrim’s UK, has invested in £1.8 million of improvements at its Bodmin factory.
The improvements include new high-speed packing lines and a storage racking system, while the business has also invested in greenhouse gas reduction projects to reduce electricity and gas usage on-site.
The food and farming business is also looking to recruit 50 new staff to work across its cooked bacon and gammon production lines over the next six months as it aims to boost production.
Site director, Daniel Inch, said: “Our Bodmin factory plays a vital role in the Pilgrim’s UK network. This package of investment forms part of our ongoing strategic focus on enhancing operations and increasing capacity across our UK business, while taking important strides towards our net zero commitment.
“These enhancements will help us continue to deliver high quality products while consistently maintaining 100% service levels, even during peak seasonal periods.”
