Butcher’s Pet Care has announced it is building a bespoke 260,000 sq ft facility to serve as its UK headquarters and manufacturing facility.

The company said its new plant would help expansion into continental Europe as well as consolidating its position in the UK.

“We have a small but successful continental European business and believe our investment in UK manufacturing over the coming years will support a growing export business,” said Butcher’s founder Graham Baker.

“We will produce around five million cans a week in our new facility to meet this growing demand. Butcher’s has always wanted to keep our business in the Midlands, where local people have helped us to grow the company to what it is today.”
