Morrisons to expand meat processing site

Supermarket giant Morrisons has announced plans to expand its meat processing site in Winsford Chesire, which will increase its workforce by 50%.

Morrisons has been at the Winsford site for two years, after taking over from Vion Foods in 2012. The new expansion will see an extra 200 jobs created, mainly in production, engineering and managerial positions.

Mark Harrison, group manufacturing director for Morrisons, said: "We are delighted at the success of the Winsford site over the past two years, which has now given us the chance to expand and offer lots of new opportunities to join Morrisons.

"This is a really exciting time to be joining Morrisons as our manufacturing sites are hugely important to the business and we are continuing to invest in them. The range of roles available will hopefully appeal to anyone who might be looking for their first job, those who are returning to work or even someone who is looking to start an exciting new career."

Eddisbury MP Stephen O’Brien said: "The success of Morrisons in Winsford, and the creation of all these new jobs, is down to good management and the hard work, skills and training of the people of Winsford. I offer my congratulations to them on this good news."
