Meat processor Canterbury Foods has completed a £2.5m refurbishment of its Hull factory that enables it to produce 100 tonnes of fresh sausages a week.
The company, which has made frozen sausages for 30 years, has installed a fully automated fresh chilled sausage production line and created a dedicated meat products business unit.
Canterbury Foods’ products are sold under own label and brands such as Plumtree Farms, Mawbeef and JL.
The processor hopes the investment will enable it to win retail contracts with multiples. It is also interested in supplying outlets such as delicatessens.
