Sainsbury ceo Justin King has opened a 65,000 sq ft sausage factory belonging to Cranswick Country Foods.
King cut the ribbon at the Kingston upon Hull site, part of a £20m capital investment by Cranswick over the past 18 months. The new factory amalgamates the company’s two sausage production sites while increasing capacity to more than 400 tonnes per week.
Cranswick, which produces Sainsbury’s premium Taste The Difference range of sausages, was Sainsbury’s first-ever Partner in Livestock and has supplied the retailer for 20 years.
