Cranswick has announced a tie-in with Spanish pork supplier Costa Foods to provide a “quality range” of charcuterie to the UK.

The major meat processor’s Continental Foods arm will import produce from the Spanish producer, which runs 600 farms in the country.

It comes 18 months after Cranswick began production at a new £28m continental foods plant in Bury, Greater Manchester.
