UK - UK and Irish meat processor, Dunbia, has expanded its operations buying the trade and assets of Heathfield Foods based in Crewe, Cheshire.

This latest development brings the total number of processing facilities in the Dunbia Group to 10 throughout the UK and Ireland.

Jim Dobson Managing Director Dunbia said: “The strategic location of the Heathfield Foods facility coupled with its strong pork supply base positioned it as a perfect fit for the Dunbia Group. By dovetailing into the existing business operations and infrastructure of Dunbia, the site will further increase our overall pork processing capabilities.”

He added: “This is an exciting development for Dunbia, and having the ability and expertise to commence production immediately at the site highlights our commitment to growing the business as well as safeguarding the jobs of all current employees.”

The Heathfield Foods facility has been renamed to Dunbia (Crewe) and Dunbia production commenced on 24 October.
