2 Sisters Food Group has announced a £7.5 million investment in its poultry site in Sandycroft, UK, which has created more than 200 new job opportunities.
The investment has been used to install new technology – including automated packing lines and new packaging machines – as well as to upgrade cutting lines and introduce X-ray bone detection machinery for fillet production.
Located on Sandycroft Industrial Estate, the facility processes 1 million birds each week and is one of 2 Sisters’ biggest sites, employing more than 1,300 people. As a result of the investment, the site is now recruiting over 200 additional workers.
A spokesperson for Sandycroft said: “This investment is superb news for the future of our site and our colleagues as we create a skilled and sustainable workforce. This is a great reward for our colleagues’ hard work, commitment and outstanding efforts in these unprecedented times.
“Colleagues who join the Sandycroft team will have learning and development opportunities enabling the site to develop competent, skilled and sustainable teams and the site prides itself on promoting within – a large number of colleagues recently received 30+ year awards.”
2 Sisters has also announced that the site will be recruiting up to 60 new apprentices over the next year.
