Tulip invests £8m in Ruskington site

Processor Tulip has reported an £8m expansion to its Ruskington plant, the largest factory for cocktail sausages and Scotch eggs to the retail sector.  

The expansion plan will see the factory grow by 25%, with the creation of up to 45 additional full time jobs. The work will also include a new production line and “state-of-art” upgrades to its refrigeration, power and waste facilities.

Phil Wheatcroft, site director, explained: “This is an incredibly exciting time for all involved in the Ruskington business. The planned investment is testament to the hard work and commitment everyone has shown and will ensure that we can further strengthen our position as an industry leader in the production of fried savoury products for the retail market while providing us with the opportunity to grow our existing foodservice customer base.

“When the work is complete, it will increase our current production capacity by 20%, as well as create up to 45 new full-time jobs, which will be of great benefit to the local community.”

Tulip said work has already started on extending Ruskington’s production area to facilitate the installation of the new production line, with completion targeted for April 2015.

Tulip Ltd, owned by The Danish Crown group, has 17 fresh and cooked meat sites across the UK, employing around 7,500 people
