MFD Foods, the restructured company that has emerged from Manor Farm Ducklings, has secured private financial backing to push for a bigger stake in the UK meat and poultry market.
The major producer of white Pekin ducklings and owner of the Manor Farm Ducklings brand, the company hopes to expand the 25% market share held by its predecessor, which went into administration in June. MFD Foods plans new products aimed at the flexi-eating and quick meal sectors.
The new managing director of MFD Foods, which supplies duck and duckling portions to major multiples, is John Woodhouse.
