NORTHERN IRELAND - Leading poultry producer, Moy Park, is upgrading its plant in Craigavon in County Armagh with new frying and fast-freezing equipment.

This month sees a major £2.5 million upgrade project underway at Moy Park's 22,000 square metre further processing site at Seagoe, Craigavon, as part of the company's ongoing plant improvement programme.

The significant investment in the very latest frying and fast chilling equipment will also deliver greater flexibility, coupled with best-available energy-efficient technology. Not only does this mean Moy Park will meet all known future environmental legislation but will also remain competitive in the further processed sector and ensure still better service levels for its customers.

Nigel Dunlop, Moy Park managing director, said, "The company has always used the watchwords 'Being best by being better' and this investment underpins that mission.

"Whilst it was signed off some time before we joined the Marfrig Group, this continuous plant improvement is very much the Marfrig way also. Only with the best plant can we expect to stay world class."

The improvements will further streamline production at Craigavon and this will in turn mean improvements to servicing customers with 7-day production and delivery throughout the year.

"Times might be tough, but we're ever mindful that in a sector as global as ours, there's always someone ready to take advantage if we don't stay ahead in every respect of our operation. Having the best production facilities gives Moy Park its edge," added Mr Dunlop.
